FTTH is a next-generation access technology to provide high speed, reliable, and quality internet service to your fixed locations (home or office) through the use of optical fiber. Acronym for Fiber to the Home, FTTH connects customer premises with optical fiber instead of coaxial cable or telephone lines. The speed that you can get with the FTTH broadband internet ranges from 1 Mbps to 100 Mbps, along with IP based voice and multimedia (IPTV video) services.
Fiber to the home service is one of the most reliable home internet solutions that is being used worldwide.
Nepal Telecom launched the FTTH service back in 2072 from limited areas of Kathmandu. Ever since they tried to expand the service to more areas but at a slow pace. Currently, Nepal Telecom fiber internet service is available in 28 districts. Having said that, it does not mean the high-speed internet service is available in all of the areas of the district.
Let’s take an instance of Kathmandu, the place where FTTH was first distributed, the fiber service is still not available in all the areas. Below we have presented tricks for how to check if FTTH is available in your place.
NTC had been providing a free voice within its network as a promotional offer from few months for FTTH phone. Now that Ntc discontinues free voice call offer, customer needs to recharge their balance for a voice call. Otherwise, they cannot use the voice call service with insufficient balance.
Ntc discontinues free voice calls from landline connected through FTTH fiber.
So, the FTTH customers need to pay Rs 250 as monthly rental for the voice service only. The monthly rental will enable 250 minutes calls to the NTC network. Whereas for other network operators, the same old voice call tariff will apply.
Currently, Nepal Telecom has individual and corporate user packages for unlimited FTTH internet. For individual customers, there are 8 Mbps, 20 Mbps, and 50 Mbps packages. While the corporate users can take 15 Mbps, 25 Mbps and 60 Mbps package for 1 month, 3 months, and 1 year period.
The most popular FTTH pack for home use is Rs 800 per month whose price is also synced with that of ADSL monthly subscription. This package is now made available only for the people who migrate from ADSL to FTTH. This package is also made not renewable after that. But if you subscribe for a year package at Rs 8000, the internet subscription becomes cheap.
You can get an additional 2 months usage after subscription of a yearly package. So, the payment of 12 months price will provide 14 months subscription.

For those who buy the FTTH internet package for a year, Ntc will provide free CPE for the new FTTH line. Similarly, for those who just buy six months package, you can buy the CPE at Rs 1130.
For a monthly subscription, the cost of the CPE modem is Rs 2825. So, we suggest you register for six months or yearly package.
|S.N.||Ntc FTTH Subscription||CPE Cost (without taxes)|
|2||6 months||Rs 1000|

The CPE will have a warranty for one month during which it will replace or repair for free. Whereas after that if something goes wrong with the device, you can replace it by paying the whole sum.
The registration charge for the subscription of the Ntc FTTH service is Rs 500.
The new FTTH customer will also get 100-meter fiber for free for the first installation. The cost of the fiber for longer than 100 meters and for maintenance purposes is Rs 20 per meter.
