Internet Service in Nepal

Posted by Dhruba shrestha Jan 5, 2017 :
Although through 2010 less than 23 percent of Nepal's population used the Internet, use of the Internet in Nepal is growing rapidly. This is the result of a competitive Internet service provider (ISP) market. Thirty-one private ISPs offer Internet access to businesses and consumers, through few, Worldlink, Subisu, Websurfer and Mercantile, dominate the market with a combined share of more than 70 percent. Cyber cafés are important sources of Internet access for Nepalis; the country is believed to have the highest concentration of cybercafés in the world. Much of Nepal's Internet access is concentrated in the more-developed Kathmandu Valley region, as the mountainous terrain and low income in remote regions of the country make access more difficult. However, one effort to bring Internet access to rural populations—the Nepal Wireless Networking Project—has already wirelessly connected seven remote mountain villages to the Internet, with plans to network twenty-one villages in all. With recent availability of the state-owned Nepal Telecom's nationwide WiMAX based WiFi hotspot services, the reach of Internet has widen with marginal success. The cost of internet is high in Nepal but the internet service is very low. The internet cost is expensive in Nepal because the internet is only delivered through India only. Now the government is in the process of connecting the internet with the china which cost less as well as the service will be good.
