NT launches four internet packages under EVDO
Nepal Telecom (NT) has launched four volume-based data packages under its Sky Pro service. The packages that are coming into effect from Sunday offer data service at Rs 0.23 to Rs 0.40 per MB.
The packages — 500 MB, 2 GB, 5 GB, and 10 GB — will have a one-month validity period, according to NT. The 500 Mb package will cost Rs 200 excluding taxes. Similarly, 2 GB, 5 GB and 10 GB packages are priced at Rs 760, Rs 1,700 and Rs 2,400, respectively.
Sky Pro service, also known as EVDO under NT’s IP CDMA project, allows customers to avail data service with speed up to 3.1 Mbps.
“Packages will help customers benefit from cheaper internet service,” said Guna Kesari Pradhan, spokesperson for NT.
She said Sky Pro RUIM can be used for both voice and data service in IP CDMA technology-compatible smartphones, desktops, laptops and tablet computers through a USB dongle.
In a bid to promote Sky Pro, NT has also been selling USB dongle bundling with the RUIM card.
NT said customers buying the bundled service get an EVDO dongle, talk time worth Rs 100 and 3 GB data with 3 months validity at Rs 2,200.
