Nepal Telecom (NTC) has launched a mobile service in Tinka in the North-West border area. The company established its reliable network in the farthest settlement in the remote mountaneous region on Ashoj 16, 2080.
With the launch of the Ntc network in the region, the locals now have access to convenient mobile services on their devices.
Tinkar did have VSAT fixed-phone service from Ntc before. But now, mobile connectivity is available for the locals who can call on its 2G network.
Ntc started 2G mobile service via very small aperture terminal (VSAT) technology in Tinkar. The area lies in Byas Rural Municipality ward no. 1 in the Northwest border area with China in the Darchula district. The government-backed company brought telecom equipment from Attaraiya of Kailali, and Chhangru of Darchula. The network availability enables reliable voice and mobile internet service on 2G.
From line phone to Ntc mobile service in Tinkar
Prior to this, the area had two VSAT-based fixed phones for communication. However, the locals can now enjoy mobile service on their smartphones. Ntc uses VSAT technology to start mobile services in areas where 4G or Net Fiber is hard to establish. Read in detail: 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G explained!!
However, the eventual plan is to transition to 4G across Nepal before the company launches 5G for the public in trial and commercial. Read in detail about Ntc 5G trial, expansion, and commercial launch plan
According to the company, 5 hundred customers have benefited from mobile service in Tinkar.
Likewise, the Armed Police Force (APF) the police in the Local Police Office, and the tourists visiting the areas will also benefit from access to mobile connectivity.
Tinkar lies at an elevation of 3700 meters. The remote region shares a border with India and China which lies 12 kilometers from Chhangru and 80 kilometers from headquarters Khalanga. An 8-kilometer walk from the area takes to pillar no. 1 at the border with China.
Ntc has established services in areas that return less financial gain and costs comparatively higher in setting up infrastructure. The company has given priority to expanding telecom services over profit.
