NT resumes balance transfer service

Dec 25, 2015: Nepal Telecom, the government owned telco has resumed balance transfer service to its GSM prepaid customers. According to some online news portal, NT has relaunched the service with new system and new procedure. It is known that customers can send their balance in the range from Rs 10 to Rs 100 but the total no of transfer in a day can be maximum 5. Previously subscribers need to put the balance amount in paisa for ex: 100 for Rs 1 but now subscribers can directly put 1 for Rs 1. The receiving number can be GSM prepaid or CDMA prepaid/Postpaid. As NT is struggling with the recent recharge problem, this service will help a lot to the customers in dire need of balance.

How to transfer balance from GSM prepaid?

To transfer the balance from your GSM prepaid number, you need a security code which can be received by sending a message scode to 1400. After getting the security code, you need to dial *422*security Code*Phone No*Rs# (which is different than the old method). The service is now enabled only for GSM prepaid numbers but the balance can be sent to CDMA prepaid and postpaid numbers.


TeliaSonera sells Ncell to Axiata

Dec 21, 2015: TeliaSonera sold its stake in Nepalese phone carrier Ncell to Axiata Group for more than US$1 billion (1 Kharba NRs), taking the first major step in its plan to exit Asian and former Soviet markets to focus on Europe and its home Nordic region.
The Swedish phone company is selling a 60 per cent stake in Ncell for US$1.03 billion and also dissolving its interest in an additional 20 per cent stake owned locally as required by Nepalese law, it said in a Monday statement. The disposal results in a positive net cash effect of 7.5 billion kronor (S$1.24 billion) after provisions, and TeliaSonera plans to use the proceeds to cut debt.
With the purchase, Axiata will add to its telecommunications operations across Asia, from Malaysia and Indonesia to India and Singapore. It's paying a total of about US$1.4 billion for an 80 per cent stake in Ncell, including the holding bought from TeliaSonera and about US$335 million for SEA Telecom's interest in the Nepalese carrier. Axiata has more than 260 million customers according to its website. TeliaSonera is seeking to focus on European markets to capitalize on higher demand for wireless Web-browsing and video services, while exiting former Soviet countries and Asia amid bribery accusations. The carrier is embroiled in legal probes in Sweden, the Netherlands and with the US Department of Justice over how it bought phone licenses in Uzbekistan in 2007. TeliaSonera has said it's cooperating with the investigations and its chief executive officer at the time has said the company broke no laws.

Shares of TeliaSonera advanced 1.1 per cent to 42.24 kronor at 9.27 am in Stockholm, giving the company a market value of 183 billion kronor. Axiata shares were halted on the Malaysian stock exchange Monday ahead of the announcement.
The transaction is set to be completed in the first half of 2016, TeliaSonera said.

NT to provide bonus for recharge for a limited period

Dec 12, 2015: Nepal Telecom, the government owned telco is known to provide bonus amount in paper recharge, electronic recharge and MPOS (pinless). For recharge/electronic recharge of Rs 200, subscribers can get 5 percent bonus whereas the bonus will be 10 percent for Rs 500 and 15 percent for Rs 1000. Similarly for pinless recharge of amount greater than Rs 100, you can get 10 percent bonus amount. Citing the huge complains from the customer regarding the recharge problem, NT has brought this bonus for a limited period and they want customer to prefer electronic recharge/ MPOS. As the current recharge problem is due to the unavailability of Rs 100 denom recharge cards (shortage due to blockade) and customers preference for Rs 50 recharge in a already loaded recharge system (VoMS), NT believes that this bonus offer will decrease the load in their system and hence the recharge problem will be sort out. This offer will be valid for four days starting from Dec 12, 2015 Sunday (Mangsir 27). By that time. it seems there will be availability of Rs 100 recharge cards or the up-gradation of the loaded system will be done.
