1 Dec 2010

The chairman of the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA), Bhesh Raj Kanel, has told online journal Voice&Data that the agency has ‘initiated studies on LTE and WiMAX rollouts’ in the country. Further, he added that several operators have made clear their intentions to migrate to 4G and have submitted requests for LTE and WiMAX spectrum. However, the official added a caveat that despite the swift award of 3G spectrum authorisations, to date there has been a slow uptake of advanced mobile data services.
