NTC’s 5G Trial Likely In the Current Fiscal Year 078/79

NTC’s preparation for 5G is in its final phase and the telco expects to start its trials in the ongoing Fiscal Year 078/79. The company has nearly completed its 4G expansion which now makes 5G its number one priority.

The state-telco has already sent a letter to NTA back on Jestha 16 for 5G permission, NTC spokesman Rajesh Joshi revealed in a recent press meet.

Nepal telecom has been rigorously expanding its 4G coverage over the few months and now almost reaches completion. “The company’s 4G project is complete by 85% already. NTC has established its 4G network in 6 hundred 92 local levels of 77 districts”, Joshi added.

NTC’s 5G Nearer As 4G Project Nearly Complete

He illustrated that the company has set up 3 thousand 544 physical sites for 4G coverage out of its projected 4 thousand and 186. The company has also installed supporting towers for 4G at large with few remaining which is now paving way for the company to focus on the 5G network.

Joshi also reported that NTC’s 4G has now almost 5 million subscribers. Combining that with 3G, its customers touch almost the 20 million mark which could possibly lure the company to shun 2G network in the future.

The state telco has also launched 4G-based VoLTE features to allow customers high definition voice calls without falling back to a 3G or 2G network.

As NTC reaches its 4G project climax, it will put all the focus and resources on 5G. For now, 5G will just be a trial and we can expect a commercial 5G network in Nepal by 2023 for major areas. The fifth-generation revolution has almost begun in India and we cannot wait to surf the internet at mega high speed on our 5G phones.
