Nepal Telecom has launched fourth generation (4G) service in Kathmandu and Pokhara from January 1st 2017. The state-owned utility launched 4G in a bid to provide faster and higher quality data services to its subscribers.

The internet services will be faster as the current speed of mobile data transfer is 14 MB/second, while after the launch, the speed will increase to 35 MB/second, claims the utility.

The 4G service will be extended to other cities too, NT claims.

NT users will be able to user 4G service on their mobiles from the first day of its launch. Though iphone has 4G-compatible models, the service will be inaccessible for iphone users because Apple has not turned on location enable feature for NT networks. The utility recently asked Apple to turn on the feature. But enabling is expected to take sometime, meaning the service will not be immediately available to iphone users.

Google Doodle on 18th Birthday 2016

The internet giant, google is celebrating its 18th birthday on 27th September 2016 with an animated Doodle shown over the search page. In 1998, the company was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin on September 27. Now the company has passed its successful 17th year and entering to 18th year. Since 2002, Google is celebrating its birthday with a Doodle every year. The first Doodle was published for the Burning Man festival in 1998, before the company was technically founded.

It shows Google’s “G” blowing up a balloon to spell out the rest of its name. But blowing it up too much, and being carried off into the sky. But there is a confusion about the official birthday date. In 2004, Google celebrated its 6th birthday Doodle on september 7 and in the year before that, it was september 8.

Happy Birthday Google From Saroj Bhattarai (Sarosebht).

4G service likely by September

4G services in Nepal

Nepali telecom operators might be able to introduce 4G service by September.

Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) - the telecommunications sector regulator -- has made amendment to the existing Radio Frequency Policy, allowing telecom operators to launch 4G service. The draft of the policy, which is now at the Ministry of Information and Communications (MoIC), will be passed within next 10 days, according to MoIC Secretary Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya.

If the amendment is passed within 10 days, telecom operators will be able to launch 4G service within September.

Nepali telecom operators have been saying that they will be able to roll out 4G services within two months of receiving permit from the government.

“We are desperate to introduce 4G service in Nepal and enhance users' Internet using experience. I believe that we will be able to begin this service within two months after getting government's permission,” Simon Perkins, managing director of Ncell, told Republica.

It has been many months since the telecom operators Nepal Telecom and Ncell sought NTA's nod to launch 4G service. However, NTA was not in a position to issue permission without making amendment to the existing Radio Frequency Policy.

“We have made amendment to Radio Frequency Policy, allowing operators to roll out 4G service. The draft of the amended policy has been sent to MoIC for approval,” Purushottam Khanal, information officer of NTA, told Republica. “We are hopeful that the amendment will be passed soon by the ministry soon, allowing telecom operators to launch 4G service in Nepal.”

The revised policy has to be approved by the Radio Frequency Policy Committee under MoIC which is headed by Minister for Information and Communications Sherdhan Rai.

Officials say the fresh amendment to Radio Frequency Policy allows telecom operators to upgrade their service under 'technology neutrality' policy. This means that operators can launch 4G service with existing 1,800 MHz frequency which is being used to provide 3G service.

Officials of NT say it takes at least 3-4 months to begin 4G service after getting regulator's permission. “We can provide 4G service with our existing infrastructure for 3G. But we will need radio network equipment and core network equipment,” Dilli Adhikari, joint spokesperson of NT, said. “As the procurement process is lengthy, it will take at least 3-4 months.”

Adhikari, however, added that the process can be simplified by adopting 'fast track' provision envisioned in the recently amended Public Procurement Act (PPA).
