How to subscribe to different data and voice packages on NT, Ncell and SmartCell sims

Representational image

Coming to the mobile telephone service providers in Nepal, there are very few players in the market. When you think of a telecom service provider in Nepal, the two big players–NTC and Ncell–come into everyone’s mind. SmartCell can also make its way but is still in the shadows of these giants. There are other service providers in Nepal: Nepal Satellite Telecom, UTL, and CG Telecom, but due to a lack of infrastructure and due to some regulations, these three have not found their way to the light. Since Nepal has only three major players in the market, today, we will be discussing different services they have for their telephone subscribers and how to get them.

1. Nepal Telecom

Nepal Telecom is the state-owned, national telecom service provider in Nepal. It is also the first mobile phone operator in Nepal. The company claims to have put its endeavours in providing its valued customers with quality service since its inception and to achieve this goal, technologies best meeting the internet of its customers have always been selected. It has a nationwide reach and has the most number of customers under its belt.

Nepal Telecom has also recently launched the VoLTE service. This service provides HD voice and video calls over the 4G network. So, this advanced technology delivers high-quality lifelike sound over voice calls across the NT 4G network.

With its international roaming facility, one can use mobile phone while visiting foreign countries when your mobile phone number remains the same and but can make or receive calls to/from anywhere around the world.
