Ncell to double the data for daily pack, with an offer.

Ncell, the private mobile operator has launched a new offer with which you are entitled to get the exact data volume for free for the daily data packages. With the offer named as Ek ko Dui offer, if you buy a daily data package (currently of 3 MB, 6 MB, 9 MB and 20 MB), then you will be getting the same volume for free. To activate the offer, you need to dial *17123#. The price of the data packs for 3 MB, 6 MB, 9 MB and 20 MB are respectively Rs 6, Rs 9, Rs 12 and Rs 20. This shows that Ncell is promoting users to surf more by providing lower tariff for Higher volume data packs, Keeping the same Rs 6 per MB tariff, without any offer. The same holds true for the Monthly data packs of 10 MB to 10 GB, but reducing the charge after package to Rs 4 to Rs 2 per MB.
If you compare Ncell's data tariff with the incumbent operator Nepal Telecom, NT does not have this sort of packages, for major outcry in the NT subscribers, but if you see their data tariff is a flat rate of Rs 1 per MB for their GSM Namaste SIM card. So if NT later brings such offer, the data tariff will go down enormously for the higher data volumes, compelling Ncell to bring another promising offer.
