NTA announces plans to allow full mobility

29 May 2007

According to the Nepalese newspaper The Kantipur Report, the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has recommended to the Ministry of Information and Communications (MoIC) to allow basic wireless communication systems with limited mobility to go fully mobile. The regulator is keen to allow limited mobility service providers using Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology to upgrade to full mobility services, as part of wider moves to adopt a Unified Licensing system like that in neighbouring India. Under the NTA’s proposals, state owned Nepal Telecom (NT) and United Telecom Limited (UTL) will be able to operate CDMA-based phones like mobile phones.
