Telecom authority NTA is prepared to inspect WiFi performance and has shortlisted 5 consultants. The project will assess the quality of WiFi performance in public areas as offered by ISPs for free.
The assessment will comply with the WiFi Hotspots Operations Regulation. And those who fail on NTA’s parameters for public WiFi service will be subject to necessary actions.
To conduct the project, Nta has shortlisted 5 consultant firms. However, this is only the first round of the selection procedure. In the final phase, Nta will assess consultants’ proposals before selecting one for the study.
The selected consultants (companies) are – Green Tick Nepal, Malakai Mekhi Technology and Suppliers, Inclusive Everest, Synergy JV, and Tangent Consultant Group and Suppliers.
Necessary action to companies who fail to meet public WiFi standards
Now, NTA will seek financial and technical proposals from each company. Then the authority will select one in the last phase of the selection procedure.
The company will then investigate public WiFi hotspots’ performance standards and submit the report to Nta.
NTA says that the consultant will inspect the performance standards of public WiFis as per the WiFi Hotspot Operation Regulation. In addition, those who fail to meet the standards will be subject to necessary actions.
Many service providers offer free public WiFi for people benefitting them with connectivity on the go. It is a generous offer for the public who gets to browse social media, share posts, pictures, and videos where WiFi is available. But if the available network is poor, it rather affords a painful experience for many. the telecom authority wants to ensure it is not the case.
