KATHMANDU : Nepal Telecom (NT) has started a pretest of 5G mobile internet service from its two transmission stations based in the capital.
According to NT, for the past few days, it has been conducting a preliminary test of the advanced mobile internet service from its offices in Sundhara and Babarmahal of Kathmandu. “Following the success of the pretest, we will take it to the next phase of testing it out in other three districts apart from Kathmandu,” said Ranjit Lohiya, deputy spokesperson for NT.
In March 2021, the government permitted NT to carry out testing of 5G services. In the first phase, the NT has planned to conduct the testing of the advanced internet service in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Biratnagar and Nepalgunj by installing BTS towers in these locations.
