Nepal Telecom becomes the first operator to start offering 4G services in the country. The Operator this week launched its 4G Service in selected locations in Kathmandu and Pokhara, two major cities in Nepal. 

The service will initially be available only for postpaid subscribers but the Operator is underway to make the service available to pre-paid users as well from the 4th of February.

Nepal Telecom which currently has around 13.3 million GSM mobile phone subscribers, secured the operating licence to provide 4G services in October 2016. Nepal Telecom said that the newly introduced 4G service operates in the 1,800 MHz frequency band that it has been using to operate 2G and 3G service.

At the end of last year, the Operator expanded its 3G service to all 75 districts in the country.
