State-owned fixed and mobile operator Nepal Telecom (NT) has set May 2013 as the date it will roll out a new convergent real-time billing system in the country, allowing subscribers to pay for their various NT services on a single bill. MyRepublica quotes NT spokesperson Guna Keshari Pradhan as saying that its range of recharge cards will also be integrated under the new system. In the launch phase, the telco will start billing pre-paid GSM and IP CDMA services through the new set-up, adding post-paid GSM in phase two and finally PSTN and ADSL broadband internet services. It could take up to three years for the full implementation it says. The billing platform was supplied by AsiaInfo-Linkage.
