WiFi Nepal is one of the newest internet service providers (ISPs) in Nepal offering the cheapest of internet packages. Due to its over-the-top affordable offerings, the company made its name earlier and stamped its influence in the internet market of the country. However, now, we can see some readjustment in its latest packages. Let’s find them in detail below.
Last year in June 2022, WiFi Nepal raised eyebrows when it launched the country’s cheapest internet package “50 Mbps for just Rs 333”. Despite the high-octane internet speed/price war, this offer was still stunning. However, as the market evolved, the company revised its regular packages in 2023.
Currently, WiFi Nepal provides its fiber internet packages in three categories- Broadband Plans, Kistama Internet, and Day Surfing Packages.
WiFi Nepal- Broadband Internet Plans
WiFi Nepal’s regular internet plans under its “Broadband Plans” are available for two internet speed packages for three different validity plans. The 50 Mbps internet package costs Rs 850 for 1 month, Rs 2,300 for 3 months, and Rs 8,600 for 1 year. Similarly, the 80 Mbps plan costs Rs 950 on a monthly basis, Rs 2,575 for 3 months, and Rs 9,600 for an annual plan.

The 50 Mbps plan was the company’s basic and most popular plan when it ventured into the internet scene. The 80 Mbps package though still not premium by today’s standards is still decent enough to meet most of our normal internet needs.
Likewise, the cost for the package has raised from Rs 333 for 50 Mbps to 850 a month and Rs 533 to Rs 950 a month for the 80 Mbps package. But the affordable tag does translate to the “one-time installation” charge. You also need to count 13% VAT in the price above for your real-life charges.

To get a WiFi Nepal internet package, you need to pay for the drop cable and the router. If you are buying a one-month internet package, you need to pay Rs 1,000 for the drop wire. Similarly, it costs Rs 750 for a 3-month package, and Rs 500 for an annual subscription.
The router costs Rs 1,500 for a month, Rs 1,250 for 3 months, and Rs 1,000 for a 1-year package. Don’t forget to add an extra 13% VAT and other taxes to the charges above.
At the moment, the company only provides a single-band router as per the website. We suppose it’s a cost-cutting measure but you can expect a dual-band upgrade soon in the future as it’s currently the norm. A dual-band router significantly elevates your home WiFi internet connection. Here, find out the reasons you should upgrade to a dual-band router.
WiFi Nepal EMI Internet Plan– “Kistama Internet”
WiFi Nepal has been innovative with its internet package at least with this EMI plan which is available for a 12-month renewal basis. The company is providing this plan for both its 50 Mbps and 80 Mbps internet packages.
In this package, you get an annual 50 Mbps package for Rs 8,600. The package includes Rs 500 for drop wire and RS 1,000 for single-band router. In total, the package cost becomes Rs 10,100 for a year with monthly EMI being Rs 842 a month.
Similarly, the 80 Mbps package costs Rs 9,600 while the drop cable and the router costs Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 respectively. The total package cost becomes Rs 11,100 per month with EMI being Rs 925 for up to 12 months.

If you are not paying the total sum at once but would love to use an installment-based payment, it’s a unique and ideal way as the cost burden is also handled while you get a standard internet speed as well.
Day surfing package
WiFi Nepal has another unique deal for you- it’s a Day Surfing Package that allows you to surf the internet from 6 AM to PM. The plan is available only for the 50 Mbps package for three different renewal basis.
You can get a 3-month package for Rs 1,200, or 6-month package for Rs 2,100, and a 12-month package for Rs 3,600. As you can compare, the costs for the day surfing are less than the regular Broadband Plan which compensates for the “off-hours” post 8 AM till 6 AM. But this package may not be for all.

If your internet needs don’t surpass after 8 PM, then it could fit your plan otherwise, it’s not going to be a popular choice as time restriction keeps you locked out of the internet throughout the night.

WiFi Nepal is just a year-old ISP that aims to make a name for being a generous company for its internet packages. And there’s a fair credit due to it, however, the company has felt compelled to ditch its legacy pricing and raise it to sustain perhaps. Anyway, the packages are still affordable by a few hundred if you compare them month by month. But there are some caveats. The company doesn’t include an IPTV service with its internet packages. There’s no dual-band router either.
However, the EMI and Day Surfing packages could be beneficial to many who want budget internet service with some compromises. The 50 Mbps and 80 Mbps speeds don’t sound much appealing either but are still more than decent enough for a regular internet user.
So, it’s up to you how much internet bandwidth you tend to consume and at what hour to decide if you want a WiFi Nepal internet service for your home connection. For any queries, let us know in the comments below.
