Nepal Telecom plans internet mobile
font size    

In a race to add new telecommunications facilities and services, state-run Nepal Telecom (NT) is soon going to introduce Internet mobile cards (Y- Max Card) based on wireless telephone technology.

Once the service is introduced, one can have access to email and Internet across the country, where wireless telephony service based on Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology is available.

Moreover, one can download and transfer data at a faster rate than the conventional dial up system, even if there is no telephone and electricity connection.

"The service is primarily developed for laptop users and one can have access to the service in areas that fall under the CDMA coverage areas," director at Nepal Telecom Sunil Pokhrel told reporters on Thursday.

The data transfer rate through Y-Max Card is also much higher compared to 56 kbps in conventional dial-up system, he said.

Telephone calls also can be made using the card through laptop.

Officials informed that NT has successfully conducted technical tests of the Internet mobile card in the capital city, Kathmandu Valley.

"However, it will take about four months for the commercial launch, as we are calling for a global tender for about 5,000 Y- Max Cards in the first phase," Pokhrel said.
