Ncell is a leading Private Telecom operator of Nepal. Malaysian Telecom giant, Axiata now owns 80% stake in the company. It was previously called Mero Mobile (GSM service started in 2005). When European Telecom company TeliaSonera bought the company, they renamed it as Ncell. The Telecom company has 2G, 3G, 4G services in GSM technology.
They have around 16 million subscribers, by the number of their SIM distribution. So, they are the second largest telecom company by the no of subscribers. It has the largest 4G coverage in the country, with more than 21 cities.
