Especially in cities, Worldink has become a household name because of its consistent internet and TV offering plus many extra features. Let’s find out the Worldlink Internet & TV packages, offers, FUP limit, and Price below.
Before the internet service boom, Nepalese were dependent on Nepal Telecom’s Dial-Up technology. It offered an offensive speed of 56 kbit/s on a shared scheme, but now the scenario has changed for good. Many private ISPs have entered into the market and thus the customers have benefited from the healthy competition.
Over a series of many posts, we will be detailing the major ISPs in Nepal, their packages, as well as costs. These posts will offer a glimpse into one of the leading ISP, Worldlink, and the nature of their services, offers, and costs. It will be helpful to the readers to figure out whether to choose Worldlink internet service based on the packages and offers it provides at the price mentioned below.
Established in 1995 Ad till date, WordLink has continuously thrived over the two decades. It is safe to say that Worldlink holds the widest clout. While most Nepalese were reluctantly using stagnant ADSL or Ncell’s exorbitantly costly data, Worldlink provided a greater escape. Since the very beginning, it has remained one of the top three telecommunication service providers in Nepal.
Worldlink’s infrastructural apparatus, commendable customer service, and emphasis on continuous improvement of its services have made it the go-to ISP in Nepal for years now.
Offering unlimited internet with a capacity for gaming was one of the legacy WordLink established. The approach made it popular among teenagers and later caught the eye of corporate and institutes too. Now the company has overseen a glorious silver jubilee.

Before we go into the nitty-gritty of the details, let’s first talk about the services it provides. Worldlink has launched a wide range of services over the years to remain the front-runner in Nepal. From NetTv to 5G router to world-class internet service, Worldlink still holds sway among other ISPs despite fierce competition.
Now, following the launch of Photon 300, Worldlink brought the Mesh WiFi system for the first time in Nepal. With Photon 600, the ISP is to introduce Nobkia Beacon 3.0 Mesh system.
As an ISP, WordLink first prioritized internet speed and increment for years. Now as technology has expanded, it has bundled NetTv, a Kathmandu-based IPTV service that offers a range of features like video on demand, Youtube streaming, and others. This feature enables watching YouTube over a non-smart TV as well.
Worldlink offers its internet service in three categories namely Photon 600/Photon Lite, SME (Small and Medium Enterprise), and Enterprise Solutions. Below is the breakdown of the packages and their corresponding costs of Worldlink Internet.
WorldLink has launched its 600 Mbps fiber broadband plan as its latest premium offer in its response to the ongoing internet speed war in Nepal. Worldlink Photon 600 the country’s fastest internet plan ever to date. The ISP has announced that it will introduce Nokia Beacon 3.0 Mesh router system to complement its blazing 600 Mbps speed package.
A 600 Mbps internet package is an elite class offering that should meet all the needs of any moderate to the heavy internet user. From gaming to work-from-home, to large files uploads/downloads, streaming, the 600 Mbps fiber broadband would surely give a joy-ride experience to the subscribers.
Worldlink has set its ultimate internet offer Photon 600 exclusively for annual renewal which comes for Rs.30,000. To set up this package, a customer will have to pay Rs.500 deposit. Meanwhile, Dual Band (ONU) drop wire, installation charges won’t be included in the first-time installation costs.

The SME Prime comes in three different renewal packages – 1, 3, and 12 months. The package costs Rs.2,00 per month for a 10 Mbps connection and Rs.3,000 for a 20 Mbps connection. Similarly, it would cost Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 30,000 for 10 Mbps and 20 Mbps connection respectively.

|1 Month||Rs. 2,000/-||Rs. 3,000/-|
|3 Months||Rs. 5,400/-||Rs. 8,100/-|
|12 Months||Rs. 20,000/-||Rs. 30,000/-|
The higher plan under the SME package brings 24 hours double bandwidth to the subscribers. Similar to its subordinate version, the SEM 24 plan comes in a 1, 3, and 12 months subscription. In terms of bandwidth, the same 10 Mbps and 20 Mbps plans are available here too.
If you subscribe to a monthly plan, a 10 Mbps connection will come for Rs. 3,000. Meanwhile, it would cost you Rs.4,000 for a 20 Mbps connection. Similarly, it would cost Rs. 30,000 and Rs.41,000 for 10 Mbps and 20 Mbps connections respectively on 12 monthly subscriptions.

Despite two different packages under this plan, the first-time installation costs the same. To set up the SME package, you will have to pay fiber router rental for either 1, 3, or 12 months. Next, WorldLink will charge Rs.500 on Drop Wire, and another Rs.500 for the Deposit which is refundable. Installation charge though would be free.
|INTERNET||1 Month||3 Months||12 Months|

|Drop Wire Charge||Rs. 500/-||Rs. 500/-||Rs. 500/-|
|Refundable Deposit||Rs. 500/-||Rs. 500/-||Rs. 500/|
Besides the regular internet offering, WorldLink also offers Enterprise Solutions. These include the following:
One of the highlights among its Enterprise Solutions is Dedicated Internet. It provides a seamless broadband connection to its customers with an uptime guarantee of 99.99%. The customer is provided internet over a dedicated IP address with consistent bandwidth. To acquire this service, you will have to head over to this page and fill up this form.
Under this category, Worldlink is also offering NetTv service for which the customer will also have to fill a form and submit it online.
The infamous Fair Usage Policy (FUP) is implemented by all the private ISPs in Nepal. Basically what it does is restrict users from incessantly consuming more bandwidth than an average user. The ISPs justify this as a measure to provide a consistent performance 24*7.
The idea is when a user consumes too much bandwidth, the other user’s browsing experience is affected. Although customers may argue otherwise on a dedicated service, this has been a norm for years in Nepal. If you have felt a lag in internet speed around 6 to 9 or beyond, it is FUP throttling your speed to maintain uniform service for all during peak hours.
It is necessary to keep track of your internet usage. Worldlink just like any other ISP may contact, warn or completely throttle your connection upon extreme use. So to facilitate users to check on their FUP status, Worldlink has its own app.
Download the app on your mobile phone, log in with your assigned id and password. Then scroll below, you will see the FUP count. If the color is green, you are consuming bandwidth within the limit, and you are fine. But if you have exceeded the daily usage limit, it will turn yellow, and you should be on alert.
A normal user would never have to come across FUP as they mostly surf Facebook, surf some YouTube videos, and google some pages and visit sites. But those who are heavy internet users, who share large videos on the internet, use torrents regularly, they may experience some restrictions someday.
Worldlink has set a daily usage limit on users before FUP strikes in. If you are still on a 20 Mbps connection daily usage limit is 25 GB and for a 30 – 40 Mbps, subscription 35 GB bandwidth is allowed. If you exceed this limit then FUP will come into effect, and you will experience a throttle in internet speed.
WorldLink has been the leader in the Nepali ISP market since its operation. With the internet speed war in full swing, the company has done its best to respond with a befitting counter to other ISPs. Its Photon 600 is Nepal’s fastest ever to date. Meanwhile, it also takes credit for launching Nepal’s first-ever Mesh Router system.
WorldLink has expanded to 77 districts and aspires to contribute to Digital Nepal Framework. The ISP has also acquired a 40% ownership at Khalti, Nepal’s prominent digital wallet to take its services far and wide in the country. Credit where it’s due. WorldLink knows how to gain momentum and seize the opportunity. It has acted with tenacity and fortitude in the ISP market and continues to make long strides despite all the odds.
