State-owned national fixed line and mobile operator Nepal Telecom (Nepal Doorsanchar Company Limited, or NT) has launched a session initiation protocol (SIP) based IP telephony service under the brand name ‘EasyPhone’, allowing users to make low-cost calls from their PC via a broadband connection. The Himalayan Times writes that in order to sign up for EasyPhone users must pay NPR500 (USD6.99) to complete a permanent pre-paid phone registration, which as part of the inclusive charges covers an NPR50 registration fee and an NPR9 ownership charge. The remaining NPR441 is for talk time, including taxes and VAT. In the launch phase NT is offering the EasyPhone service from its Teku, Baneshwor, Chabahil, Jawalakhel and Gongabu branches.
