KATHMANDU: WiFi-Nepal, a new internet service provider, has begun operations on Wednesday with the announcement of the market’s cheapest internet package.
According to the company, it has introduced the cheapest internet package in the country with the goal of providing convenient internet access to all Nepalis. It has now begun offering internet packages of 30 and 50 Mbps.
Customers who sign up for the annual plan will receive 30 MBPS internet for Rs. 4,000 (Rs. 333 per MPBS) and 50 MBPS internet for Rs. 5,000 (Rs. 417 per MBPS).
Similarly, a three-month package of 30 MBPS will cost Rs. 1,100, and a six-month package will cost Rs. 2,100. A three-month package of 50 MBPS will cost Rs. 1,500, and a six-month package will cost Rs. 3,000. The company’s services are currently available in the Kathmandu Valley.
According to the company, both of these packages are the most affordable options in Nepal. “When internet costs are high, customers are forced to share and use them,” CEO Ritesh Raj Singh explained.
According to the company, customers can book for internet connection by visiting the WiFiNepal.com.np website.
It stated that in addition to the one-month, three-month, six-month, or one-year package fee, customers must pay Rs. 1,500 for an internet connection for a router. “There is no additional charge for connection or installation,” the company stated.
Currently, the company intends to provide internet only for domestic use. “We’ve been doing our research for the last year to maintain quality at a lower price,” Singh explained.
