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 continued improvement of its services has 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.

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.
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 Residential Broadband, SME (Small and Medium Enterprise), and Enterprise Solutions. Below is the breakdown of the packages and their corresponding costs of Worldlink Internet.
Worldlink finally made its befitting statement to the growing internet war in the country. Bringing the WorldLink Photo series, the largest ISP stood up to its reputation as the leader in tech and innovative strategies.
WorldLink Photon brings the juggernaut 300 Mbps internet package for consumers, a record in Nepal that topples CG Net by a gulf. The fastest bandwidth speed also comes with the Mesh WiFi routers for uniform broadband performance.

But this offer comes with a caveat. Subscribers to this package will have to pay in advance and this is available only on annual basis. Furthermore, WorldLink has stipulated that Wi-Fi connection will be limited to only three devices. The rationale behind this is that the package is for individuals or small families with less bandwidth requirement. The limitations will help the users with the uninterrupted connection.

As shown in the table, 5g based router costs Nrs. 4000 per months for 30 Mbps, but the sum would decrease for subscription of 3 and 12 months. If you subscribe for 12 months of 60 Mbps flagship package, the router would come moderately at Nrs. 1,000 albeit you have to pay the whole sum at once.
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 consistence 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 to 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 FUP count. If the colour 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 a leader among ISPS for its continuous improvement of service. Over the years, it has expanded service to 73 districts. Such wide penetration has catapulted Worldlink to the top perch among the ISPs.
Over the years it has garnered the widest customers base, but it has also attracted negative PR due to its fluctuating speed and its owner’s origin. However, Worldlink has never done down on its knees but committed to improve the service when its demanded.
Its gradual offering of higher bandwidth connection has made Nepali market ever more competitive and the service has kept improving much to the benefits at the customers’ ends.
Worldlink hasn’t pleased everybody but no ISP ever will. The few are often the loudest, and they are heard the most on the internet but Worldlink has tried to address their concern with better technology. Over the last 25 years Worldlink has only thrived and continues to prosper for a foreseeable future.
