State-backed telecom operator Nepal Telecom (NTC) has fully converted copper based telephone exchange in Hattigauda, Kathmandu to the optical fiber network. The migration move comes as part of the operator’s series of recent efforts to base its services on fiber technology.
Hattigauda is the company’s first exchange in the Kathmandu Valley to have its older-generation copper wire technology completely replaced with the modern optical fiber network.
On Chaitra 29, the company said that it has upgraded traditional copper-based telephone and internet technology to the optical fiber network. This will greatly improve the company’s services for the customers.
The company has been active in replacing older technology with fiber in many other areas as well. Just recently, Ntc completed copper-to-fiber migration in Rajbiraj. Likewise, the telco also migrated its PSTN line to optical fiber in Galyang, Syangja and Hetauda, Makwanpur. Fiber technology promises faster, better, and more reliable communication services than copper cables.
The telco has also requested its customers to migrate from copper to fiber technology-based services.

Following the conversion to optical fiber, the company’s customers of telephone and data through the exchange will receive improved services while it also unlocks more abilities. Customers can now expect faster internet, clear audio in voice calls, and TV service (IPTV) via the same fiber cable. Ntc calls the service Triple Play.
In an event organized to announce the complete network replacement, Wireline and Customer Service Directorate Director Radhakrishna Dhungel and Provincial Directorate Kathmandu, Bagmati Province Director Sabina Pradhan switched off the copper wire network in a symbolic gesture to transition to optical fiber technology.
Nirmal Ghimire, Office In-charge of Gongabu Telecommunication Office, and Deputy Managers Narayan Prasad Kafle, Anuradha Sharma, Sitasharan Dutta, and other employees were present in the program. Also read: How to Convert Ntc ADSL to FTTH (Fiber Internet)?
