Nepal Telecom launched its broadband services by use of ADSL 2+ technology to its valued customers in Baisakh 17, 2065. The service is initially available for Kathmandu valley but now it is available in all 75 districts across the Country. The services will be only provided by use of existing copper cable network infrastructure. At first, only high-speed Internet Service shall be available and gradually services such as VPN, multicasting, video conferencing, video-on-demand and broadcast application etc. shall also be added in future. This service is available in most of PSTN Offices. In order to know that your ADSL connection is working you need to check if the router of the ADSL led will first blink and then glow continuously after you connect your Modem/CPE to the phone line. If there is no response showing (no continuous glow) in the ADSL Led of your Modem/CPE, Please contact the corresponding NTC office to query if there is any problem in your ADSL line. There may be some mistakes in setting properties of your router. If you don’t know how to set up the settings of your router you can contact to your near NTC office and take your router there and they will perfectly set up your router.
At the last time in the early stage, there were monthly and 3-monthly packages were available for subscription. Two-speed schemes were available: 128kbps and 256 kbps. The subscription can be done at Nepal Telecom counters where the ADSL services are available. Monthly port charge for the subscribed ADSL service shall be included in the regular Telephone Bill. Subscription charge shall be paid at the time of registration. Recurring usages charges (monthly or 3-monthly) shall be on a prepaid basis.
But as there was only one internet service provider in the market which was NTC there was no competition so there were no good services. But now as the competition is getting tougher as there are lots of ISP in Nepal, NTC has also changed its services and has provided better facilities.
