Ncell, the private telecom operator has collaborated with two of the Private School Associations (PABSON and NPBASAN) to bring a monthly Student plan for easy online learning. The special monthly plan targets the students and teachers to perform online classes in this COVID-19 pandemic. As the schools are closed throughout the country, they are bound to perform online classes using the internet.
National Private and Boarding Schools Association Nepal (NPABSAN) and Private and Boarding Schools’ Organization Nepal (PABSON) are two of the renowned private school organizations in Nepal. They have signed an understanding (MoU) to use the Ncell’s mobile data for the connectivity required for the online classes. The monthly plan introduced will provide affordable and easy mobile broadband for the students, teachers, and schools.
Ncell’s offer for the students includes a special SIM with voice, data, and SMS combo package. There are three student plans for the eLearning offers which you can also activate in the current SIM card. Let’s talk about the basic package called Student Plan A. It includes 20GB of data per month for online learning using applications like Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams. This large data package is worthy for the students, teachers to attend online classes for a long period. Other data package is 3GB data (1 GB in 3G/4G network and 2GB in 4G network). Find the latest data packages in Ncell and choose the best/affordable among them.
Similarly, the other packages in the Student plan A are 120 min talk per day within the CUG network, 50 minutes on-net talk time per month, and 50 SMS within Ncell per month. CUG network means the closed user group for the school, with which the students, teachers, and staff are associated. The cost of the special bundle including all of the packages mentioned above is Rs 250 per month which is exclusive of the taxes. 13% VAT and 13% TSC applies in all of the three student plans.
Here is the summary of the Ncell’s Student plan A, for the students engaged in any of the School’s network. The offer is the same for all school networks like PABSON, NPABSAN, and HISSAN.
All of the packages are for a month and it recurs every month. So, you need to have sufficient balance for the monthly rental for the subscription.
The students, teachers, and staff can take the special online learning bundled package from Ncell. To get the offer, they need to take a recommendation letter from these organizations for their school. They can take the special SIM under the institution name or self-name based on their choice.
Pradeep Shrivastava, Chief Commercial Officer of Ncell expresses their delight to partner with PABSON and NPABSAN to contribute to the digital learning and education sector of Nepal. As COVID-19 affected all the sectors including the education sector, such a monthly offer will help people to acclimatize to the new normal from the pandemic.
These private school organizations have found the monthly plan to support students to learn remotely with digital applications. President of NPABSAN Ritu Raj Sapkota expressed their delight in the partnership with Ncell for this special monthly plan. He believes this plan will help to connect their students with teachers for online learning, till the school remains closed.
Similarly, Tikaram Puri, President of PABSON said that the collaboration will support schools for the increased use of virtual learning in the pandemic.
Earlier Ncell collaborated with the HISSAN network for such a similar kind of offer. It seems Ncell is targeting to fulfill the connectivity requirement of schools for the digital classes. This has great potential now due to the closure of schools and the people’s acceptance of digital platforms for learning like the Government’s Sikai Chautari.
