These packages, offered as a part of their Corporate Social Responsibility, are sure to help their customers by providing them with a large amount of data at a reasonable price. But, these packages only seem to be targeted towards their customers in urban areas. Most of the provided packages seem reasonable for the 4G network and the telecom operator has 4G coverage in only 19 districts of Nepal.
Smart Telecom, the telecom company that owns the Smart Cell brand has been expanding its mobile coverage but at a slower pace. They first started providing service in the year 2008. It is the third-largest telecom brand after Ntc and Ncell.
Most of the people who are lucky to get stable network coverage of Smart Cell are found to be fully satisfied with the service and the offers. Whereas there are some people who could not get the Smart Cell network at all or it’s unstable, seemed to be complaining a lot about them. Which one are you??
