Nepal Telecom(NT), the major operator in Nepal and China Telecom Global Limited(CTG) have reached an agreement to deliver IP services in Nepal, with the 2016 newly launched terrestrial cable route connecting China and Nepal via Jilong (Rasuwa) Gateway.

Over the years, China Telecom said it has been fully committed to developing terrestrial cable connecting to neighbouring countries. The new China-Nepal route is unprecedented as it is a new direct alternative route for traffic demand generated from Nepal to all over the world, and provides the highest quality service and low latency solution for end users in Nepal.

The latest development will also support NT which plans to start 4G service in some major cities in the country from January 1, 2017. NT has already received the 4G licence from telecommunication sector regulator, Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA). NT is expected to roll out its 4G service on 1,800 MHz frequency band, which is currently being used for 3G service.

Ou Yan, Executive Vice President of CTG
The China-Nepal route could provide service to Nepal and transit service from India. China Telecom has put tremendous effort into building the route through the Himalayas.

Kamini Rajbhandari, Managing Director of Nepal Telecom
We are confident that China Telecom would provide reliable service and are looking forward to establishing Nepal as a transit hub through this route.
