Broadtel customers can buy a prepaid card of Rs. 250, Rs. 500, Rs. 1,000 or Rs. 4,000. “Customers will be able to make international calls from their mobile sets at an affordable price with crystal clear voice quality,” said Rabi Shankar Ghosh, business development and strategy officer. “The service is available through IP phones and soft phones using laptops or desktops too.”
The company has an investment of Rs. 200 million and plans to expand the service to 20 cities by next year. So far, it has established 125 antennas in strategic locations in the cities and plans to operate the service in Chitwan very soon.
