Nepal Upgrading Phone Connectivity Near Border

Nepal Phone Connectivity

The Nepal government is upgrading its telecom network in the villages bordering India, amid continuing tensions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in India-China. A Nepal government official said that in the coming two-three months, mobile towers will be installed in villages for 4G networks.

At the same time, officials of Indian intelligence agencies say that Nepal is working on introducing 4G services in its border villages with the help of a Chinese telecommunications company. Most of the locals towards their country on the Indo-Nepal border use Nepali SIM cards, as they get better quality telecommunications services from Nepal than Indian telecom service providers.

Assistant Chief District Officer of Darchula district, Tek Singh Kunwar said that this work is going on to further boost the signal quality in Nepal’s village of Chhangru, Vyas and Tinkar in Darchula district near the Indo-Nepal border in Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand. .

Kunwar said, ‘Telecom service is being improved to provide better services to the villagers near the border. For the same, about two weeks ago, DoT officials visited the area. On the issue of introduction of 4G service in the border villages, Kunwar said that more information about this can come only when the telecom officials will come here again.

Officer of Telecom Department of Darchula district, K.B. Gurung said, ‘Yes, we are working to improve the telecom service in these three villages. Chhangroo and Vyas already had mobile towers, but Tinkar did not. He told that there was 3G service in Chhangaru and Vyas, which we are updating to 4G. The towers of these two villages will be operated through satellite. At the same time, a tower will be installed in Tinkar. However, it will not be a 4G tower.
