The number of Fiber internet users is approaching 2 million with service providers adding 1 lakh customers in a month, the latest NTA report shows.

The total of unique fiber broadband subscribers has reached 19 lakh, 94 thousand, 7 hundred, and 63 as of Baisakh, 2079 BS. Previously, the total stood at 18 lakh, 99 thousand, 3 hundred, and 54 unique subscribers. That means the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) added 95 thousand, 4 hundred, and 9 customers in one single month.

The unique subscribers represent each separate individual customer who pays renewal charges to the service provider for an internet package.

Major ISPs add more fiber Internet Users

WorldLink, Nepal’s largest ISP, and the third largest telecom company have taken its total base to 6 lakh, 29 thousand 5 hundred, and 81 users. The private internet leaves behind competitors in the customer base total by a mile.

Besides WorldLink, only three other companies serve over 2 lakh customers and the gulf is too wide in WorldLink’s favor.

Classic Tech which has been running riot in recent months with remarkable proportion added 4 thousand 5 hundred, and 65 new customers to its base. With this, the Kathmandu-based ISP has reached a total of 2 lakh, 20 thousand, 3 hundred, and 9 unique users.

Subisu was another service provider to see another positive month. The private service provider which pioneered cable internet in Nepal added a massive 13 thousand, and 600 new customers to its growing base. Now, the company’s total base stands at 2 lakh, 18 thousand, 4 hundred, and 12 subscribers.     

Vianet which has struggled in recent months ‘added’ a staggering 57 thousand, 8 hundred, and 93 new customers, the report shows. This also means it has surpassed the 2 lakh customer mark reaching 2 lakh, 20 thousand, 2 hundred, and 70 users.

NTC maintains growth without entering the speed war

Nepal Telecom (NTC) is a government-backed service provider that also provides fiber internet service ‘NT Fiber’. And as amazing as it is, the company seems largely unaffected and unflinching by the ongoing speed war in the Nepali internet market. The company has shockingly continued its respectable growth despite not entering the contest with a conspicuous ultra-speed package.

Continuing its growth, Ntc added 4 thousand, 5 hundred, and 3 new customers taking its total to 1.80 lakh. The company provides voice, high-speed internet, and IPTV service (NTTV) through a single fiber cable. Ntc calls this unique combo service “Triple Play”.
