Telecom carriers sign internet deal
Nepal Telecom, Nepal’s stateowned telecom company, and China Telecom Global have signed an agreement on providing internet services between the two countries using cross-border terrestrial cable route. Geelong Port in China will be used for the route to provide the internet service. The two companies signed the agreement in Hong Kong earlier this week. The two countries were connected with optical fiber through the Geelong-Rasuwagadhi border point in June, ending Nepal’s sole dependence on India for connecting the Himalayan country with global telecom and internet services.
