Ncell- the private telecom operator has announced the implementation of new pulse rate. One month before, the regulator NTA has directed all the telecom operators to implement the new pulse rate of 10 seconds. Nepal Telecom has immediately responded to that directives and implemented it by New year. But there was a report for Ncell that they had not implemented such.
Telecom operators were hesitating to operate this new pulse rate. As the new pulse rate is going to reduce their revenue heavily, they have been so resistant. They claim of charging only for the period of conversation. The missed calls, long ringing periods are not included in the charge. So they are asking regulator not to bring down such pulse rate heavily.
Ncell notifies public for the change of the pulse rate. The new pulse rate is implemented from today (Baishak 6, 2074). This is actually 6 days after, as mentioned in the directives. There was also a report that NTA could penalize Ncell for the late response. But we do not know how the regulator take up this case now.
Here is the Ncell notification in Facebook.
After the change, the pulse rate for domestic calls is 10 seconds and for international calls, it is 30 seconds.

NTA is even planning to implement pulse rate of 1 seconds that is charging only for the seconds they make calls. That is for the domestic call rates and for international call rates it will be 10 seconds pulse. NTA says the date for implementation of per second pulse is six months after the New year.
