Marking the anniversary day, Nepal Telecom has launched 4G service to its GSM prepaid subscribers. More than a month ago, they had launched the 4G service for postpaid users only. That time it was a soft launch, now this is a commercial launch with 4G prepaid. The Ntc 4G network is only available in Kathmandu and Pokhara city.
After the postpaid launch, the query for prepaid was very much high as 90 percent of subscribers are in prepaid. They made the soft launch so as to gradually improve the network with least no of customers. As the work for improvement has completed. Ntc launches 4G for huge prepaid customers.
How to subscribe 4G in prepaid and what is the 4G promo pack?
The promotional offer for post paid was 1GB per day for 4 days but for prepaid the offer is 100 MB per day for 4 days. We came to know about the offer from the snapshots send by our Facebook follower. The activation procedure for 4G is the same as that of before which is *444#. After that select 1 or simply dial *444*1#.
4G works fine with iPhone 5, 5s and 5c and some variants of latest iPhone too. There may still be problem with latest iPhone like 6, 6s and 7. The issue will resolve in the next update of their OS, scheduled to release in end of February or early March.
