Nepal’s second largest cellco by subscribers, Ncell has announced the launch of its 4G LTE network yesterday (1 June) after it was given permission to roll out 4G services last month by the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA). All Ncell customers possessing a USIM with a 4G-compatible handset will be able access the company’s LTE network in the Kathmandu Valley, including the areas of Nagarkot, Banepa and Dhulikhel.
