NTA Tells Smart Cell to Continue Its Service After Network Outage Grows

Telecom regulator Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) has directed Smart Cell to continue its telecom service. The telling comes after Smart’s network mysteriously turned off in various parts of the country.

The authority said that it has taken strong notice of the telco’s network outage issue in some parts of the country. It’s a division of the monitoring body that has thus asked the telco to resume its services.

Earlier, Smart users from many areas complained that the Smart Cell network has been out for months without any official notice. While some users said the network came back online after maintenance, others said there was no intervention for months.
