CG Telecom preparing to launch fiber internet within the month of Baisakh
CG Telecom under Chaudhary Group umbrella has started final preparations to bring internet service into operation within the month of Baisakh(April/May).
The company is currently building it’s infrastructure to provide FTTH internet service in Kathmandu with the objective of aggressively taking over the market. Earlier, the company had plans to be operational from Baisakh 1, but all the necessary technical works has not been completed yet, the company said.
In the initial stage, necessary infrastructure is being laid out to bring fiber internet in operation from some places in Kathmandu. The company claims to provide quality internet at a competitive price.
With the entry of Chaudhary Group in the internet market of Nepal, the challenge on other service providers is expected to get fierce.
Apart from this, the company has also started the process of procuring necessary equipment and materials including point-to-point fiber connection, OLT (optical line terminal) and routers.
After failing to obtain a unified license to operate mobile and basic telecommunications services, CG immediately shifted its focus on Internet services.
The company has already obtained licenses of Network Service Providers and Internet Service Providers from the Telecommunication Authority of Nepal (TAN) for importing bandwidth and operating internet services.
