Nepal Telecom (NTC) has started 4G service in Chhangru, Darchula. The government-backed operator started the high-speed mobile broadband service via 4G for the first time in the historical areas of Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura.
The popular region is not favorable for setting up infrastructure. The operator had to transport the necessary 4G equipment in a helicopter to launch the 4G service.
However, bringing modern and advanced cellular technology will open up easier communication among the locals and possibly help promote the digital economy in the area.
In addition, the service launch means Ntc expanded its coveted 4G service to the farther Western region of the country. In recent years, the company has aggressively focused on service expansion, especially its fourth-generation cellular network.
But starting the service was not easy for the leading operator. It built a necessary network from its New Balashikhar repeater station in Mahakali Municipality to Vyas Rural Municipality via microwave radio link and from there to Jyakti and Chhangru.
Ntc 4G in Chhangru and Jyakti to benefit hundreds of households
The launch of NTC 4G in Chhangru, Darchula will benefit 7 hundred people from 120 households. In total, including people from surrounding areas, up to 4 thousand people will have the service of high-speed 4G mobile broadband thanks to Ntc.
Chhangru is located in a geographically sensitive region of Nepal. With the 4G service live, surrounding areas such as Gunji, Kuti, Tinker in Lipulekh, Kalapani, and Limpiyadhura will benefit from high-performance internet speeds.
