    Bro, There might be 45 ISPs registered in Nepal but not more than 3-4 operate outside of the KTM valley.

    Over here in Butwal, all we have is Wlink and Broadlink

    and even Broadlink has tower only in 1-2 places thats it.. so in a nutshell Wlink enjoys a monopoly over here

    NTC and Ncell, i don’t want to comment. One is way to unreliable and other is way to expensive…

    Websurfer, subisu, classictech, MOS, Himaltech  might show on their site that they have point of presence but none of them even has a office outside Valley… In Pokhara there might be a few more but thats it

    I don’t know when will these ISPs get over there KTM centric mentality and spread their line all across country,…

    When they are focusing on Wifi only then i dont think its too hard to build up tower in various cities…

    I wonder why there are so many ISPs in Nepal? I was to choose a better always on Wireless service (portable) once in Ktm, and they all are only claiming not doing any good at QoS and customer level, they don’t even listen to customers. NTA should do something now.

    Here’s a small tip for people who are willing to get ISP in Chitwan. Don’t get internet from Techminds. I swear the internet of Mercantile or Worldlink 15 years back in a cyber cafe was faster than what it is providing now in 2015. Same experience with SuBiSu in Kathmandu. I wonder why every services in our country is so compromised. Why don’t we consumers get the service what we paid for?

    I want to have internet connection at kabilash of chitwan which is 23 km far from narayangadh and 13 km from muglin for company purposes . please suggest me best one.

    1. Team TechSansar says

      We suggest you to go for NTC’s WiMAX using ODU (Out Door Unit), as it can catch signals from a far away NTC tower. However, please call your nearest NTC office if they have signals at that location.

      Other options may include Techminds, they should have connection at that area as well. Do contact them.

      Worst case, you can go with Cellular GSM data.
