Releasing a statement, the government-backed company notified that its telecom gears were damaged by technicians from another service provider. In its statement, the company highlighted the increasing instances of damage to its infrastructures in recent months.

Ntc sees a series of infrastructure damages
In recent months, Nepal Telecom has suffered a series of damages to its infrastructure. At times the cause has been infrastructure construction damaging its fiber cable. At other times, the company saw possible arson being the cause. Whatever the cause, disruption in communication services brings a disservice to thousands of customers. It has also translated to huge revenue losses for the company.
In March, Ntc saw another equipment damage which could have been a possible case of arson.
The company has requested local bodies for coordination to avoid such damages. At the same time, human errors must also be equally minimized to ensure no damage occurs to telecom infra. Because communication service is a must in today’s times and living with limited to no network is not an option for the public. Let’s hope all the stakeholders are on the same page regarding this.
