Nepal Telecom has started FTTH fiber internet service in Dhankuta, Tehrathum, Sankhuwasabha, and Bhojpur. The company’s Dhankuta branch upgraded the capacity of its network via ADSS and began 4G and fiber internet services in the four hilly districts of eastern Nepal.
This became possible after an underground 100 Gbps fiber transmission line reached the district. Now, the customers of Ntc will get high-speed and reliable internet service powered by the next-generation fiber technology.
Ntc office chief of Dhankuta, Suman Acharya said that Ntc expanded its fiber internet to Hile Bazaar, Dhankuta, Mulghat, Sindhuwa Bazaar of Chhatharjorpati Rural Municipality, Bhedetar Bazaar of Sagurigadhi Rural Municipality. Additionally, Pakhribas Municipality and Chaubise Rural Municipality will also get the fiber connection in FY 2080/81.
Likewise, in Sankhuwasabha, Khadbari, and Tumlingtar, Mudheshnishchare of Dharmadevi Municipality has now received fiber internet. The expansion work for Chainpur Municipality will begin this year.
At the moment, Ntc has installed a 100 Gbps fiber line from Itahari to Hile of Dhankuta, and it runs from Myanglung of Tehrathum to Phidim of Pachthar and Birtamod of Jhapa. The line runs to Itahari again. Therefore, it serves as a backup to keep the internet working when a problem occurs in any area.

With the expansion, in Dhankuta, 2,621 routers are providing internet to over 8 thousand households. Similarly, 703 routers in Bhojpur and 980 routers in Sankhuwasabha have unlocked fiber internet in 1,500 and 2,000 households respectively. In Tehrathum, 1,500 customers are getting fiber internet via 670 routers.
In recent years, Ntc has accelerated efforts to replace its ADSL fixed-line internet with fiber. Fiber-based internet is faster, more reliable, and more consistent than copper-based internet. Read more: ADSL Vs. FTTH Comparison
