What’s in Smart cell SIM: Coverage, Tariff and more.

If you are fed up with the same old Ntc Ncell network (no matter how good and reasonable they are), you now have an option for a new mobile network to choose. You might have already heard of Smart Telecom with mobile brand name of Smart Cell, that challenges the duopoly of NTC and Ncell. It is already operational in 32 districts of the country.

Smart Telecom is the third-largest operator of Nepal Telecom industry, after Nepal Telecom and Ncell. After operating a mobile network in western remote areas, it is now being available in different other parts of the country. For many years, Smart Telecom SIM and network are also available here in areas surrounding Kathmandu city. Below include the whole list of areas.

Now, they only have a 2G GSM network with EDGE for data services. They have already launched their 4G network in some selected cities. Find the coverage areas below.

Smart Cell has 2G and 4G networks only.

Price/ Cost of a Smart cell SIM

Smart cell SIM costs Rs 99 with the main balance of Rs 50. The main balance can be used for the call, SMS to any network and internet data. Smart Telecom also provides a bonus amount when you recharge Rs 100 or above in each month. The bonus balance comes only from the second month of the SIM activation. The bonus balance of Rs 162 includes

  • Rs 100 of talk time, 50 SMS within Smart cell network and Rs 50 for other networks.
  • Recurs every month if there is a recharge of Rs 100 or above.
  • The bonus amount will come for a year only.

The validity of the Smart cell SIM card is six months. The problem with the Smart cell SIM card now is it only has a regular SIM card inside. As most of the SIM slots available in smartphones are either micro or nano, they will surely make the three in one SIM card available, as with NTC and Ncell.

3GB data SIM

Smart Cell has recently launched 3 GB data SIM at Rs 99 with main balance of Rs 1. The 3 GB data can be used for 30 days. Similarly, you can get 20 mins talk time valid for 30 days with the SIM card.

They do not stop such an offer for the first month only. For the 2nd to 6th month, you will get 1 GB data bonus on recharge of Rs 100 or above. The 1 GB data is also valid for 30 days period.

The 3GB data SIM is only available for limited cities: Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur and Pokhara.

All-new Smart SIMs are available in three in one version, which means they do not need to cut for different sizes (Micro, regular or Nano).
