CG Net is expanding rapidly in Kathmandu. Initially launched in select areas of Lalitpur, the company is ruthlessly moving to new areas inside the valley.
CG Net is the first ISP in Nepal to break the 100 Mbps mark to offer consumers internet at an eye-popping low cost. The company is providing 120 Mbps internet for just Rs. 999 which has since inspired an internet war in the country.
Since its mindboggling launch on June 1, CG Net fiber has aggressively widened its FTTH service across the valley. In the beginning, CG Net was available in only Jawalakhel, Jhamsikhel, and Harihar Bhawa. Then, the company expanded it to 6 more areas.
Coverage in Kathmandu
CG Net is now available in more areas of Kathmandu such as Kalanki, Teku, Kuleshwor, Balkhu, Kalimati, and Tripureshwor. Below is the list of the areas where CG Net’s high-flying 120 Mbps plan is available.
Kalimati – Solti mod, Tahachal, Tinthana, Chhauni, Kimdol New Baneshwor – Tinkne, New Baneshwor, Mid Baneshwor, Bhimsengola, Bogati Tole Koteshwor – Baalkumari, Narefaant, Chyasal, Tinkune Shankhamul – UN Park, Aloknagar, Buddhanagar, Maaitighar Maharajgunj – Baansbari, Hams Hospital, Basundhara, Dhumbarahi, Chandol, Golfutaar, Chundevi Temple, Tilingatar Gongabu – Pragati Nagar, Siddi Tole, Buspark, Greenland, Samakhusi (out of the Ringorad area), Grandee Hospital (West & West vicinity) Chhauni – Sitapaaila, Bijeshwori, Armi Hospital, Vishnumati Kinara areas.
New customers of CG Net can have the broadband installed within 6 to 24 hours after confirming their request for a fresh connection. The company charges Rs. 999 (excl. of VAT) for the breakout 120 Mbps fiber internet.
Those making annual payments will receive a concession on the router and installation charges. Upon new connections, the customers will have the option of monthly, 3 months, and six months’ renewal plans. The company also spares installation and fiber cable charges on longer renewal plans.
CG Net is focused on widening its coverage to major cities this year. CG’s Managing Director Nirvana Chaudhary says the company will add more services to its fiber internet package. He also hinted at the company’s IPTV service. He claims that its IPTV offering will come with newer and better technology not seen among others’ TV solutions.
CG Net Will Sustain With Its Strategy
Chaudhary has also spoken about the sustainability of the low-cost broadband offering. He says CG Net has avoided investment in legacy networks and only exercises the latest technologies. This has helped the company afford a very cost-efficient internet package right from the beginning.
Besides, it has also managed to reduce overhead costs and save money on marketing due to word-of-mouth publicity. This has enabled the company to utilize the amounts on importing better technologies and services. He even claims that CG Net could further lower its internet prices in the future when its FTTH service achieves a convincing ratio with the customer base.
