Leading telecommunication company, NTC has decreased the internet price to 5paisa per 100kb from 10paisa per 100kb bandwidth consumed. The price of bandwidth has been decreased for 3G, GPRS, PDSN and EVDO.

According to NTC, it is a promotional rate and will last for next three months. This promotion was started from July. NTC will continue same data rate if approved by NTA. The current data rate introduced by NTC is definitely the cheapest rate in Nepal in comparison to NCell and UTL.

NTC also introduced EDGE GPRS since last year but customers still have complains against the poor quality of GPRS internet. Even though the rates are cheaper, the quality of NTC is not as smooth as of NCell. GPRS internet offered by NTC doesn’t run smoothly even in places that have full network coverage.
