Nepal Telecom (Ntc) has begun 3G service in Malkwang and other remote areas in the Myagdi district. The other areas that have begun receiving mobile services are Malampar, Bul Gaaun, Bhedikhalta, etc.
Ntc has started 2G and 3G services in the area to provide both voice and high speed internet service.
This has brought a major relief to the people in the areas. Prior to this, the locals would have great difficulty communicating. They would even climb up a tree to get a cellular signal. Now, the service has spared them these daily life inconveniences.
The service began with Ntc erecting a 12-meters long tower on the top of a hill in Malkwang, Dhaulagiri Rural Municipality-5. Ntc began both 2G and 3G services together in the village.
“It was very difficult to communicate over a phone, to exchange information, or to inform relatives. Also, carrying out government work was also difficult. But with the beginning of telecom service, it has become easier,” said Thaman Thapa, a local resident.
The operator has likewise, begun services in Ward no. 6 Marang, Bul Gaaun, Raghubanga rural municipality-8 kuine Khani. Besides, services have also begun in the majority of areas in the Malik rural municipality-6.
