The ISPs’ earning gulf is wide and expected!

The earning statistics show a wide gulf between the ISPs. There is a difference of 3 billion rupees. But it is also obvious as each company’s earnings are determined by the number of its subscribers. WorldLink serves more than 5.5 lakh customers in Nepal. Subisu serves below 2.5 lakh which is less than 3 lakh subscribers of WorldLink.

However, the gulf improves down the line. Both Subisu, and Vianet average around 1.17 billion. Although at the tail, it is very less.

As per NTA, there are currently 53 ISPs in Nepal serving fiber, cable, and wireless internet. Main ISPs buy their bandwidth from upstream providers Airtel and Tata in India. Other companies in Nepal buy their bandwidth from the major ISPs in Nepal. The source of bandwidth purchase also significantly influences the ISPs’ earnings.
