Ncell, the private Mobile operator closes its zero Twitter and Free Wikipedia offer. The two offers were popular among students and low paying customers. Ncell had launched both of these free twitter and free Wikipedia services, around 3 years ago. Ncell was offering free data for the micro blogging network Twitter and information database Wikipedia, to their customers. But now Ncell puts an end to these two free offers.
Twitter was almost free with tweeting, reading other tweet, Direct message (DM), follow / un-follow and many more. Similarly, Ncell customers could view freely all the information content from Wikipedia. Only for the external links, Multimedia links, the customers were charged of standard data packages.
These two offers were free from either their mobile website or their official application. They were really helpful for enhancing the information and making it affordable to a large volume of people.
We have even found that there are people who keep no balance but using this free Twitter and free Wikipedia continuously. Ncell notifies that these free Twitter and free Wikipedia service closes from today March 25, 2017 (Chaitra 12, 2073). Now that these two free services are closed, it have great impact on those students and low paying customers who were able to be connected to the world without any balance. They have already started trolling Ncell for the closure, even relating with the pending tax issue.
It seem like Ncell has a lot of analytic done with these two free plans. It is also likely that Ncell might have lost some revenue out of this free plans. As the revenue from the customers are decreasing day by day, Ncell is reverting their old plan to gain some revenue. The latest decision of per 10 sec pulse and later 1 sec pulse is seriously going to reduce the revenue of the telecom operators in Nepal.
