Nepal Telecom’s ADSL internet has already served people for more than a decade. Though the ADSL technology still performs well in some locations, there are many factors including the distance and copper cable affecting the data speed and connection reliability. That’s why a lot of people query about the process to convert their ADSL internet into Fiber. Let’s jump right in for how to change Ntc ADSL line from the copper cable to the Fiber-based FTTH service.
The ADSL service works with the same copper cable that comes to your premises for the telephone line. Now the Fiber also provides the internet and telephone over the same FTTH service. Check the comparison between ADSL and FTTH to find out the real differences and also the superiority of FTTH over ADSL.
Nepal Telecom itself is also working on migrating their copper customers to Fiber. But as their Fiber service is not available in all the areas, they are confined to limited migration. For such migration, Nepal Telecom will contact you and perform the switch on their own, which is also for free. If you have got calls for such change, we suggest you change immediately. Otherwise, you will have to visit their office if you want to switch later.
