State-owned telecoms provider Nepal Telecom (NT) yesterday cut both its distance and roaming charges on mobile-to-mobile services, writes eKantipur. The company has, however, fixed the cost of making long-distance calls from any of NT’s GSM, W-CDMA or CDMA-based Sky phones to other networks at NPR1 (USD0.015) per minute. Under the operator’s new tariffs, customers making a call from their NT mobile to another number on the network will only have to pay the airtime charge, regardless of where in Nepal they make the call. NT says a call made by a user with a GSM contract plan to another NT mobile will cost NPR3 per minute (peak) and NPR1.5 off-peak. However, the same call to a landline, CDMA service or to rival service provided by United Telecom Ltd, Spice Nepal or STM Telecom Sanchar in another zone will incur an additional charge of NPR1 per minute.
