Nta to roll out free internet at TU campus, MoU Signed

Telecom regulator Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) will provide internet service at various TU (Tribhuvan University) campuses around the country. The authority has signed agreements with many colleges including Sanskrit University. The internet service will be free of charge.

The regulator has signed an agreement with respective universities for broadband service.

Nta Chairman, Purushottam Khanal, Registrar Prof. Dr. Peshal Dahal from Tribhuvan University, and Registrar Madhav Adhikari on behalf of Nepal Sanskrit University signed the MoU.

The free internet project for TU will use the rural telecommunication development fund (RTDF). The internet service will be established at TU and Sanskrit university. Telecom companies in Nepal pay a sum of their profit in RTDF to Nta which it mobilizes for various service expansion projects.

Payment after two years of free internet at TU and Sanskrit University

The authority said that the broadband connectivity will be free for two years but the respective educational institutions will need to bear charges afterward. It’s the same broadband strategy it has adopted with its nationwide free broadband project at local levels. The project has also started free internet services at community schools, colleges, wards, health centers, etc.

The high-speed fiber internet will make TU campuses and Sanskrit University works more efficient and accessible. Likewise, it will benefit the Digital Nepal initiatives by helping to connect more people with broadband internet and promote digital inclusion.

Nepal though has a growing number of subscribers in numbers, the figure doesn’t translate into reality. As many in rural areas are still without consistent internet service. Many are without fiber connectivity and are dependent on 2G for voice only. At colleges, many are still deprived of consistent internet access which could prove vital for learning. Nta’s project if works to plan will further contribute to uplifting the lives of many at higher-level of education with the help of high-speed internet.
