NTC Transporting Equipment by Helicopters to Remote Areas

Nepal Telecom (NTC) has continued transporting telco equipment by helicopters to launch 2G & 4G services in remote areas this FY 078/79. The state-backed telco says it has launched remote telecommunication services in 8 districts and will continue to expand despite little profit potentials. Find more information about the remote mobile tower operation in detail below.

Since Dashain, NTC has explored feasible methods of transporting telecom equipment to remote areas in Nepal to establish communication services. Many regions in Nepal require delivery of basic households items at their doorsteps by airways or ropeways due to difficult terrain. In this, NTC has also been carrying its heavy telco equipment by helicopter to these distant areas for a long.

As usual, NTC has employed freight helicopters to carry telecom equipment to 8 remote districts in the current FY 078/79. This has allowed the state-telco to set up GSM 2G and 4G services.

Service And Not Business

The launch of 2G & 4G will bring quality voice calls and reliable mobile broadband services to these underprivileged areas. These areas do not reap NTC’s economic benefits for its services however.

Setting up the telecom infrastructures is also costly due to transport liability in these remote areas. Despite these, the state-telco is committed to providing much-needed telecommunication services to the people.
