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 is 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 the 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 Worldlink. Yes, I know many of you are going to bash me for this. I am currently a WorldLink user and I have my own share of ups and downs! I had been using WorldLink for more than 5 years and the service just keeps getting better. Worldlink was a little on the expensive side but the company has been adding better service for the same price. Service both in terms of speed and reliability. With my earlier ISP Vianet, I had to call at their customer service every once in a while.
Prices of NTC ADSL is Rs. 800+taxes for 5MBPS 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, nobody 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 decent internet speed with Free Clear TV. the TV service was and still is the USP that Subisu provides to its customers. 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 has reliability issues. Some time of the day it works crazy fast, other times, the connection speed reminds you of dial-up network connection. Also, at times the Internet doesn’t work at all. 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 choose, 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.
For the first few years, the internet speed and reliability wasn’t all that good. But now, I rank it as the best IPS for consumers. Customer Service is fantastic too! For the money, you get a lot with WorldLink.
