Another day, another ISP. Well, not really! But the number of ISPs we have right now in Nepal is just staggering! Sure the number of Internet users are increasing, but the number of ISPs are increasing in twice the rate. With so many options, it becomes hard for consumers to select the best service provider. Hope this article will help you select the right one!
Let’s get straight to the point! The top 5 ISP’s of Nepal are:
- NTC ADSL
- Subisu Cablenet
There are also other ISP’s like NetMax Technologies,Mercantile Communications, Global Internet, AccessNet Communication, etc which are not very popular. The above 5 ISP’s( those listed in Bullets ) offer best service and good value for your money. Also, they are wide-spread unlike some of the other ISPs. In addition to that, many of these have various packages available like Night Time Internet Access Package, Volume Based Package, Unlimited Package, etc. The price of the service varies from ISP to ISP.
The Best Internet Service Provider (ISP) of Nepal has to be NTC ADSL. Yes, I know many of you are going to bash me for this. I am currently a WorldLink user and I am not quite happy! I had been using ADSL for more than 5 years. ADSL was a little on the expensive side but the service was fantastic. Service not in terms of speed but in terms of reliability. With Worldlink, I had to call at their customer service every once in a while.
Prices of NTC ADSL varies from Rs.1,017 for 192kbps to Rs.1,500+Tax for 384kbps Internet Speed. Also, volume based packages are available which offer much more bandwidth(Internet Speed) but there is a threshold on how much Internet you can use. You can find more about the Volume Based package by clicking this NTC ADSL link.
ADSL users hardly face any technical difficulties as the system is very reliable. But if you do, you are in big trouble. The customer support is downright awful. You know how government offices react to phone calls! Half of the time, the customer service number will be busy and when the phone rings, no body will receive at the other end. But this won’t be much of a concern to most of us as the Internet up-time in more than 95%. For now, the best Internet Service Provider (ISP) of Nepal has to be ADSL.
The No.1 Contender for the ISP prize-fight battle is Subisu CableNet. Though not the best Internet Service Provider (ISP) of Nepal, Subisu Internet is very popular among people. The reason people choose Subisu Internet over other ISP is its low cost as well as the good service it provides. You get 256kbps Internet for Rs.1100 along with all the TV channels. This is indeed a very good service where users can enjoy the best of both worlds. The Youtube Videos stream flawlessly in Subisu CableNet and the download speed is also very good.
The only problem is that Subisu CableNet sometimes work all the times. Also, at times the Internet can be really slow. The Customer Service Support is good and much better than that of NTC.
These are the two best ISP’s available right now. If you have to chose, do chose from any of these two. If these service providers are not available to you, go for WorldLink.
Worldlink is Ncell in the world of ISP. Looking at their advertisements, one is very likely to fall in their net. I did! In their ads, we can see that they provide very high bandwidth (fast internet speed) for very little money. They from time-to-time come up with an attractive scheme which will lure even the geekiest of people.
Other than not being reliable, WorldLink is really good. The Internet speed is good. Customer Service is fantastic too! For the money, you get a lot with WorldLink.
