Nepal Telecom to expand fiber internet in all areas of Kathmandu in FY 079/80

Telco giant Nepal Telecom (Ntc) aims to bring its fiber internet service to the entire area in the Kathmandu valley in fiscal year 079/80.

The company’s FTTH service “NT Fiber” has already reached the main urban centers in the nation’s federal capital. But the work to expand the high-speed broadband service to rural areas has also begun.

Prior to fiber service, the government-backed operator was providing copper-based ADSL internet service. The company launched its next-generation fiber service in 2015 as a pilot project which became commercially available in 2017.

The company has also been upgrading its copper-based traditional service with fiber.

Recently, Ntc issued a statement encouraging its copper-based customers to migrate to fiber services. Likewise, the customer base has soundly accepted the company’s fiber services despite the prevalence of private ISPs in the market.

Convert ADSL to Fiber

The reason NT Fiber is so appealing is that it provides Triple Play service. It brings voice, call, and internet service through a single fiber cable. No other companies yet have offered this type of service.

Nepal Telecom fiber continues to expand

To date, NT Fiber has reached the main cities of all 68 districts across Nepal. Ranjeet Lohiya, Ntc’s Assistant Spokesman said that 2.26 lakh new points were connected this year. The plan is to set up 3 lakh points in the current fiscal year. In total, the company has over 9.55 lakh FTTH points all over Nepal.   

Mr. Lohiya admitted that the company’s expansion effort has been slow and attributed it to having to install connection points. Failure to bring equipment due to Covid-19 remains another reason behind its underwhelming coverage growth.

Ntc plans to expand the fiber internet service in all of Kathmandu by the end of Ashar, 2080. Dolpa, Mugu, Humla, Kalikot, Jumla, East Rukum, West Rukum, Bajhang, and Bajura have yet to get NTC’s FTTH service.

Besides voice, data, and internet, Ntc’s Triple Play fiber internet subscribers also get 106 GB of mobile data for free. Check out: How to get free mobile data on Ntc FTTH subscription?
