Ntc Begins 4G in Pathibhara, a Popular Religious Site

Nepal Telecom (Ntc) has started 4G service in Pathibhara, a popular religious site in the Taplejung district. This enables the visitors to the precious heritage to enjoy high-speed broadband connections on their devices. Mr. Yogesh Bhattarai, a UML politician, and former Minister of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation broke the news in a Facebook post.

Expressing his delight, Bhattarai said the 4G launch in the area will allow visitors to post their photos and videos online. The service launch has been the result of a long effort by the state-backed operator, Nepal Telecom (NTC), he said.

Pathibhara is one of Nepal’s most popular religious heritage, located at 3,794 m elevation in Taplejung, a district in Eastern Nepal. Thousands of devotees visit the site every year. But the lack of mobile broadband had kept the people at a disservice for so long. Now, with Ntc launch 4G in the area, the visitors will have reliable fast broadband. They can connect to the internet, and communicate while they are at and around the site.

Digital Nepal is the driving norm and the state telco is keeping no stone unturned in ensuring mobile communications expand far and wide across the country. 4G in Pathibhara is another instance of commitment to broaden the service and help realize a Digital Nepal vision.

The telco has almost neared nationwide 4G coverage to date and currently, it is preparing for a 5G launch. If everything proceeds as planned, it could begin the trails in 3 – 4 months.
