Nepal Telecom 3G project
Nepal Telecom upgrades their network as a part of their multimillion-dollar project called 10 Million GSM/UMTS line project. For which, Huawei is the equipment service provider for the whole of Nepal. They believe the faster internet speed will help the customers to have better internet experience and new services as put above.
After the completion of this project, the higher speed mobile network (3G) will reach to more areas of Nepal. The 3G will reach to all of the most data demanded cities in the country. Most of the people are also waiting eagerly for the arrival of 3G in their place.
