Ncell, the private telecom operator is found to be testing 4G in more cities. Earlier, we have made a report regarding the 4G signal in Hetauda. As they have announced to launch 4G in Pokhara and more cities from July 1, it is quite obvious to start testing there.
Ncell had launched 4G in Kathmandu and vicinity on June 1. They had also provided 1 GB data free for 3 days and Yonder music streaming app for a month. It is possible that they could provide the offers for those new areas as well.
It is an accepted standard to test a technology before putting in to commercial. So we can find 4G signal even before the commercial launch. As per the feedback, people even find 4G signal in those areas where they have put their 4G advertisement.
Ncell operates 4G tower in more areas.
It seems Ncell has already opened up their 4G network there, after the operation of 4G base stations. According to our Facebook followers, Ncell customers can get 4G signal in their phone and use it for internet.
Similar is the case for the feedback from Pokhara, Biratnagar, Birgunj and Bhairahwa. Ncell 4G signal could be available in more cities, as they have already announced to launch in 14 cities immediately. So, any one who have upgraded their SIM to USIM, can get the 4G signal in their 4G phone if the coverage is available.
If you are in other major cities of Nepal, please read, “how to activate 4G and put 4G mode in handset“, then use your 4G enabled SIM card and 4G mode in handset to know if your city have 4G. The cities could be all of the metro and sub metro areas. As it could be only in the core city area, you can try there. If they have already operated or testing 4G from Ncell, it may be likely to show 4G in your mobile. Please feedback to us with the snapshot of speed test, if you have found 4G signal from Ncell.
The testing in those areas means Ncell is also going to launch 4G in Biratnagar, Jhapa and more cities any time soon.
