Nepal Telecom (Ntc) requests to update the changed landline phone numbers after the migration from copper to fiber. The state-backed telecom giant has also requested its customers to update their numbers on several platforms as the number change announcement will go off after some time.
Releasing a notice, the company notified customers regarding the update of its changed landline contact numbers. In recent times, Ntc has been upgrading its traditional copper-based PSTN landline phone numbers to fiber-based FTTH service. This has required a slight change in the existing number of landline phones.
Ntc’s Provincial Directorate Office, Kathmandu said that Ntc changed 1 digit in the existing landline phone numbers for the migration to fiber. Customers right now get a call announcement regarding this change when they call the older number. As per the notice, the announcement will feature on the Ntc network for 3 months after the number change.
Stating that the announcement will stop after 3 months of the change, the company has requested its customers to update their new landline numbers on their website, official letter pad, etc. In some areas, the existing landline may not require the change in the phone number even after the migration. It could be possible for the numbers which are operational via NGN technology. However, all other landline phones from traditional TDM exchanges require the number change for the migration to fiber.
Ntc landline being migrated to fiber
Copper-to-fiber migration has been accelerating as the company plans to replace its older-generation copper services with fiber networks. By this fiscal year FY 2080/81, it expects to have its entire PSTN landline services running on fiber technology. And it has some key advantages for the company.
Fiber service enables Ntc to offer voice, FTTH fiber internet, and IPTV (NT TV) services all through a single cable which it calls “Triple Play”. Ntc’s landline service which is also called PSTN service has 4 lakh, 43 thousand, and 102 subscribers across the country.
Ntc has made the announcement to notify customers for their proactiveness in informing people of the new number, so as to avoid the miscommunication later. If you want to migrate your number to fiber (based on availability), you can request for the migration to Ntc fiber net by calling 198 and then press 1.
