Nepal Telecom slashes charges, comes with a little relief

Finally Nepal Telecom (NT) has slashed some of the subscription charges and calling rates on its major services including 3G, GSM, CDMA and PSTN International (ISDN) calling rates. However, the lowered rates are not much likely what the subscribers expected from the country’s largest telecommunication company.
It took Telecom a six-month period to lower the charges, due to government formalities. The table below shows the newer charge rates with Nepal Telecom 3G services.

rates. Many cyber cafes and other ISPs are now running such SIP phones (NetPhones)
at much cheaper price.

ADSL Volume based: Onward Jestha 16, 2067 (May 30, 2010) Telecom is planning for
volume based ADSL package in two schemes – right now ADSL is unlimited in data plan.

Meanwhile, NCell has also lowered tariff for India, USA, Baharaia, China, Hong Kong and additional five countries to Rs 6 from May 18.
