Nepal Telecom (NTC) has launched its Group SMS service for its mobile users. The service allows users to send an SMS to up to thousands of different Ntc phone numbers at once. With it, the telco is bringing several SMS packs to its customers targeting their usage during the festival season.
Previously, it was required to talk to SMS service providers for such a huge number of messages, but now, the Ntc is providing the service through its own subscription mechanism.
A normal message consists of a user sending a message to another single recipient but a group SMS involves one sending a message to multiple users. Ntc says its service lets users send a single message to 2 thousand, 5 thousand, and even 10 thousand unique Ntc numbers. An SMS under the group SMS service costs only Rs 0.5 (50 paisa).
The government-backed operator says it costs Rs 1000 to send two thousand SMS in two days. Likewise, Rs 2500 allows users to send five thousand SMS in five days. If you spend Rs 5000, you can send 10,000 SMS in 10 days.
|Ntc Group SMS number||Cost||Validity|
|2000 SMS||Rs 1000||2 days|
|5000 SMS||Rs 2500||5 days|
|10,000 SMS||Rs 5000||10 days|
The group SMS service is on-net meaning users can send messages under these packs within the Ntc network only. The company says there are no additional taxes on the service.
