Smart cell 4G
When Ntc and Ncell had applied for 4G with technology neutrality, Smart telecom had also applied. Citing the insufficient infrastructure, the regulator NTA has not awarded the License to Smart. Ntc has already provided 4G in Kathmandu and Pokhara whereas Ncell has just got the license. Now it is a matter of time when smart will also operate 4G in major cities. It is also known that the Smart telecom’s GSM equipment can be up-gradable to 4G. As their network infrastructure is expanding, Smart can also join the race for 4G.
