April 6, 2016: Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA), the regulatory body for telecommunication in Nepal is planning to award LTE license and frequency to the telcos in Nepal. At the earliest, NTA is known to formalize the “technology neutral” spectrum in Nepal for the existing telcos which will enable them to launch LTE technology in the existing frequency band. As confirmed from several news, quoting NTA head Mr. Digambar Jha, it is known that NTA is mulling to bring LTE in 1800 MHz. After that they will invite more operators (including current ISPs) for the auction of new frequency chunks in 2600 MHz or 700 MHz. Right now, operators are using chunks of 900 MHz, 1800 MHz spectrum for 2G and 2100 MHz for 3G. The frequency policy formulated back in 2012 already paved the way for using new technology in existing spectrum chunk but it was never implemented in real sense. Several online news portal mentions that this new technology will be launched in Nepal within 3 months after the availability of license and frequency. Here are some basic queries and answer about the LTE technology.
