Nepal’s internet market is crowded and you want the best internet service provider at an affordable price, but it mightn’t be as easy as it sounds. Of course, the quality of your internet reflects your productivity, from browsing the web to streaming videos from YouTube, your internet quality affects how much you get things done. Here you will find the different technology, and services for the best Internet service providers (ISP) in Nepal.
We are here to help you in selecting the best ISP Internet Service Provider in Nepal. So, we will be comparing the quality and quantity of various ISP, and you can choose according to your needs.
First, let’s get the terms right because you may want to know about the different types of internet access. The frequently used name is “Broadband”; it merely covers all of the commonly used internet access: DSL, fiber-optic, cable, 4G, and satellite except dial-up. Since satellite internet access isn’t available in Nepal, we won’t be talking about that.
The most Popular DSL service is the one provided by NTC: ADSL. It uses the telephone line to give the internet without disrupting the telephone service. Whereas the thing with ADSL is that they are old, and the speed you experience decreases with your distance from the ISP station. Right now, in Nepal, the only ADSL provider in Nepal Telecom (NTC), we will see how NTC is dealing with this worn-out technology. Similarly, the A in the ADSL means Asymmetric for the downlink and uplink speed, with the downlink being of higher data rate.
The local cable TV provider provides this internet connection. The internet connection and TV connection use the same wire for the service. Although it is an excellent alternative to ADSL, it isn’t the best one either. Although most of the cable TV providers in Nepal use this service, fiber internet will turn it obsolete if it hasn’t already.
Finally, the fastest internet connection so far is with optical fiber. If you are not familiar with fiber-optics technology, it uses optical fiber, which is flexible, and transparent with a diameter that is slightly thicker than a human hair. It is superior to ADSL or cable connection in every aspect; they permit transmission over longer distances and at higher data rates. While the initial cost is a bit high, it is a service worth investing in the long run. Read more posts about fiber internet FTTH.
After the wired connections, ones that are mainly available in the city or suburb, there is a small number of Wireless internet service providers that are based on specific areas only. The speed and reliability of such wireless internet depend on the signal received in the customer’s premises. Then there are a couple of internet options from the telecom companies, based on their 4G network. As the 4G network is expanding these days, this mobile broadband service is the future of the internet that will be ubiquitous no matter where you go.
There are tons of ISPs in Nepal right now, but we will be focusing on seven major Internet Service Providers. Now, let’s get down to our topic and help you find the best ISP in Nepal.
WorldLink has earned enough credibility to become the largest ISP in Nepal. From reliable high-speed internet packages to diverse internet packages, Value Added Services, and customer care services, the company continues to lead the internet market in Nepal. Together with IPTV service, the company has the best-in-class fiber broadband packages suited to the diverse needs of its customers. Currently, you can get up to 600 Mbps internet plan from WorldLink.
Besides, you can subscribe to 150/225/300 Mbps packages for Rs.14,400/16,800/19,800 on a 12-month subscription. Check out the updated Price of Worldlink Internet Packages and Offers. And they come with 1/2/3 NetTV, a digital TV for your home entertainment. Besides, you also get an option of NetTV Streamz+, the upgraded version of NetTV that brings you 180 AirConsole games, 4K multimedia support, and all the popular TV channels.
WorldLink also bundles its internet with a dual-band (Nokia 5G) router which ensures consistent bandwidth performance. If you want an even more elite service though, subscribe to a 1 Gbps plan and a WiFi Mesh router system which comes with separate nodes to get the best internet performance over a large area.
WorldLink’s 1 Gbps internet service costs Rs.39,999 annually. The ONU and drop wire charges are waived. The company only charges Rs.500 for an ONU deposit. If you are a heavy internet user with lots of browsing, large media downloads, streaming, and need high bandwidth regularly, its the best deal for you.
WorldLink also provides a Mesh router for its customers which ensures consistent and uniform broadband speed over a large area. The Mesh system comes with individual nodes that are placed at different points over a distance that deliver an uncompromising internet speed.
You get the first Beacon Mesh node for Rs.8,000. Besides, the installation cost of Rs.3,000 and deposit charge of Rs.2,000 are also included. The 1 Gbps internet with Mesh system makes WorldLink a one-stop ISP for the ultimate internet service in Nepal.
Besides, you can choose Photon 600 Mbps plan which costs Rs.30,000 annually. If you opt for a more compact solution, you can choose the Photon Lite series, which offers a very good combination of high-speed and affordable. What distinguishes WorldLink is that new subscribers will be getting a 150 Mbps minimum package and the existing users have already seen the upgrades on their existing packages.
With the blend of high-speed packages, affordability, WiFi technologies, and efficient customer service, WorldLink remains Nepal’s most prominent Internet Service Provider.
Vianet is a company with many “Firsts” to its name. The company gave Nepal its first fiber internet service in 2011. It was also the first company to introduce an IPTV service. Through its continued offering of affordable and practical internet packages and the integration of innovative digital services, Vianet remains one of the best deals for internet service.
Always serving its maximum for the customers, Vianet launched its high-speed broadband packages with its Ultra-Fi schemes, as part of its dice in the ongoing internet speed war. The premium package comes with 125/175/250 Mbps offers which respectively cost Rs.13,200/15,000/18,000 annually bundled together with a dual-band router. In terms of installation costs, the ISP charges only Rs.500 on monthly and 3-months subscriptions while it is cost-free on a 12-months renewal. Check out Vianet Internet Offers, Speed, and Price.
Vianet also bundles ViaTV with its internet packages in which you are entitled to 1 ViaTV for 125 Mbps package, 2 for 175 Mbps package, and 3 for 250 Mbps packages. The primary ViaTV STB activation costs Rs.3000 on a monthly subscription and Rs.2,500 on a 3-months plan. However, if you are paying for a 12-month internet subscription, the 3 ViaTVs subscription comes free of cost.
But that is not all. If you are seeking an even cost-friendlier package for moderate internet usage, Vianet has it ready for you. The ISP has launched a Mini-pack that is an ideal combination of good speed and cost. The Mini-pack comes with a 75 Mbps plan for just Rs.9,600 per 12 months (Rs.800 per month). Besides, it also brings 48 GB of Ncell data.
We have ranked Subisu 3th for its low-key presence in the most breathtaking time for the internet in Nepal but we are not being judgmental about its offering. Subisu still packs the punch with its very reliable fiber broadband internet that comes along with Clear TV. Let’s get to its packages and price.
Another leading private ISP Subisu offers various affordable internet packages. Not behind competitors by any means, the Kathmandu-based service provider also offers high-speed packages at convenient price ranges. Like others, the ISP offers up to 650 Mbps internet packages with IPTV and dual-band router.
Subisu’s 650 Mbps premium package comes for Rs.21,239 annually and with STB activation and ONU, and wire charges, the first-time installation becomes Rs.25,221. For what such speed delivers, the price is decently set. But if you are a moderate user, you can choose from 200 Mbps and 350 Mbps plans which come for Rs.14,942 and Rs.18,482 respectively. These premium offers come with Clear TV Subisu’s IPTV service.
If you only want the FTTH plan, the company offers 150 Mbps and 300 Mbps packages which cost Rs.13,274 and Rs.15,044 respectively. Since the minimum internet speed is upgraded to 150 Mbps, Subisu customers can rely on the company for decent internet performance around the clock. Subisu is also marked for its diligent customer service across the country. Find all the details on Subisu’s services and prices of Subisu Internet and TV subscription.
At 4th is standing Nepal Telecom (NTC)’s broadband product NT Fiber which is a curiously amusing case. While the private ISPs are running havoc with their A1 high-speed internet plans, Nepal Telecom has chosen to stay untouched and keep along. The ISP’s confidence manifests on the back of its unique Triple Play service through which the state operator is offering fiber, telephone, and TV service. But it goes without saying that the ISP has remarkably improved its internet service since upgrading to fiber. Now, altogether the NTC has 25 Mbps to 100 Mbps internet plans for customers. Let’s talk about its packages:
NT Fiber has two different packages for broadband service – Individual Package and the Premium Package. The individual package comes with internet+1 NT TV+1 telephone service. Speed-wise, there is a 25 Mbps package which costs 1,400 per month. Likewise, the 40 Mbps package costs Rs.1,850. NT Fiber’s highest offering, the 80 Mbps package comes for Rs.2,450 per month. These packages are subject to the Fair Usage Policy.
Meanwhile, you can also opt for a Premium Package that doesn’t include a Fair Usage Policy. In this package, the 50 Mbps plan costs Rs.5,178 per month. The 80 Mbps plan costs Rs.6,678, and the 100 Mbps plan costs 8,178. Check out the speed, offers, and price of NT Fiber Internet (FTTH).
As for installation costs, you will need to pay Rs. 500 for NT Fiber CPE without telephone and Rs.1,165 with it. Meanwhile, the router costs Rs. 2,825 and the NT TV STB costs Rs.3,800. As for fiber cable, NTC covers it for 100 meters, and for further length, it begins charging Rs.10 for each meter. All the charges above are inclusive of applicable taxes.
NTC’s Fair Usage Policy is also generous and applies per day. The telco has set a 30 GB cap per day on 25 Mbps package subscribers, 40 GB on 40 Mbps, and 60 GB on 80 Mbps package.
Despite being overrun in the speed game by affluent private ISPs, NTC has remained content. In fact, its user base has even grown remarkably following the conflict between the ISPs and NEA a few months back over the charges on the usage of utility poles, and it continues to do so giving head-on competition to the private ISP.
As you can bring home a telephone, a digital TV, and reliable fiber broadband, NT Fiber is definitely recommendable to anyone.
This shouldn’t surprise you that we positioned Classic Tech in this position. Given how the ISP is growing its coverage and customer base and accentuating Nepal’s internet market. The Kathmandu-based ISP has taken the internet speed war to the next phase by launching a Tachyon 1000 Mbps internet (1 Gbps). It is not just the country’s first-ever, but also a world-class feat on its own. Besides, it is introducing a Tri-band router for the first time in Nepal. Now let’s talk about its packages and cost.
Classic Tech has an exceptionally diverse range of internet packages for moderate to high bandwidth seekers. There is a starter 150 Mbps plan that comes for Rs.1,119 with one Prabhu TV per month. Then there is a 225 Mbps package for Rs.1,399 with 2 IPTVs. For high bandwidth consumers, there are 325 Mbps and 625 Mbps packages that come for Rs.1,649 and Rs.24,99 that come with 2 and 3 IPTVs respectively. But the real show steal is the milestone 1,000 Mbps plan which costs 3,994 per month.
In terms of installation costs, Classic Tech does it for free for first-time setup. But you will need to pay Rs.500 for FTTH cable and Rs.2,000 for Dual-band ONU on a 3-month subscription and Rs. 2,500 for monthly set up. A further Rs.500 goes into the deposit for the ONU. As for the Prabhu TV, you will be required to pay Rs. 2,000 for STB activation on 12-month, and 3-month subscriptions and Rs. 3,000 on a 1-month subscription basis.
Classic Tech’s values lie in its diverse range of packages and its minimum bandwidth speed of 150 Mbps. The more amazing fact is its stakes have tremendously grown in the past few months with its bold strategy to venture into the internet speed war. Its coverage around 74 districts of Nepal has also helped it stage eye-popping Tachyon products.
DTH provider Dish Home started its internet service in 2020. But despite being relatively young, it has already cemented a place as one of the fast-growing and prominent ISPs in Nepal. In terms of packages, Dish Home is very aggressive and also pragmatic. Let’s find out why Dish Home could be your choice for internet service.
The company’s Mega-Fi plan is a testament to how competitive it has become despite its 2 years in the service. The plan brings 600 Mbps and 300 Mbps internet packages.
The 600 Mbps plan comes with WiFi 6 wireless communication standard and costs Rs.29,999 annually. The 300 Mbps plan costs Rs.19,999 for the same duration. But what makes Dish Home so worthy of an option is the diversity of options. Unlike many, you can also choose its flagship offers for 1-month, 3-month, and 6-month payments.
The 600 Mbps plan costs Rs.2,999 for a month and Rs.1,799 for the 300 Mbps plan. Find here all the details for the Mega-Fi plans and their costs.
Dish Home Fibernet’s basic plan is a 25 Mbps plan that comes for Rs.1,100 a month. The 30 Mbps plan comes for Rs.1,250, and the 40 Mbps plan comes for 1,500.
Similarly, in the mid-tier, it has 60 Mbps and 80 Mbps packages that cost Rs.1,750 and Rs.2,000 respectively. Dish Home’s flagship 100 Mbps package comes for Rs.2,200 a month. With Dish Home’s FiberNet, you will also get access to its 62 HD, and 138 SD TV channels from the country’s leading DTH.
CG Net gets the credit for catapulting Nepal’s fixed-line internet speeds to up to 4-digits. The harbinger of the internet speed war didn’t disrupt the market but did send ripples throughout for its bold entry with a 120 Mbps plan for just Rs.999. Currently, the company is focused on service expansion and better service delivery.
As part of its TV+Internet initiative, the company brought its IPTV service with SkyCom in August 2022. And launched three different internet packages –
Under its Jodi IPTV+ Internet Packages come plans for moderate to heavy internet users. The Rockstar Jodi plan brings 305 Mbps internet plan for Rs.1,375 on monthly renewal. You can pay for the flagship plan of Rs.9,720 for 3-month, and Rs.16,488 on an annual renewal. Similarly, you can opt for the 155 Mbps Jodi package which costs Rs.1,055 per month, and Rs.12,660 for a 12-month subscription. The budget-friendly 80 Mbps package costs only Rs.810 per month and Rs.9,720 on an annual basis.
For the IPTV service, CG Net charges Rs.2,600 for a Set Top Box (STB) but it comes for free on an annual subscription. The digital TV service brings over 275 TV channels to your TV set where 150 channels air on HD.
CG Net offers its broadband service in two packages – 120 Mbps and 50 Mbps. The 120 Mbps packages cost Rs.999 per month. It costs 2,997 for a 3-month subscription, Rs.5,994 for 6, and 11,998 for a 12-month subscription. Likewise, its 50 Mbps plan comes for Rs.649 only a month. This costs Rs.1,947 on a 3-month subscription, Rs.3,894 for 6 months, and 7,788 on an annual plan.
As for the initial setup costs, the installation and drop wire charges are free. But you will need to pay for a dual-band router which costs Rs.3500/3000/2500 on a 1/3/6 months subscription. It is free if you subscribe to a 12-month plan. Additionally, you will pay Rs.500 for the router which is refundable upon its return.
Internet services have been expanding to more places in the country but the private ISPs are yet to reach the remote parts where the fiber and other infrastructures are difficult to install due to the difficult terrain and weather. In such areas, Wireless/Mobile broadband is the only viable option.
Considering this, Nepal Telecom (Ntc) and Ncell have also been working on providing internet service in those areas with a 4G CPE-based broadband option. Ncell calls it a home net Wirefree+ internet service which costs Rs 500 to Rs 900 for 25 GB data to 60 GB data, idle for a single connection at such places. Likewise, you can get free CPE and more offers in the home internet service from Ncell.
Nepal Telecom has a similar service called 4G Wireless Home broadband service which has two packages of 60GB and 120GB that costs Rs 900, and Rs 1200 respectively. For this service, you need to buy the CPE from the market and a special sim is available at the NTC office. As Ntc additionally provides a 4G network in a lower band (800 MHz), its 4G coverage and speed are quite good in remote areas, but you need to make sure your device works with band 20 4G.
So, there you have the latest update on the best internet service providers (ISP) in Nepal.
