Kathmandu, December 2
The network of the state-owned Nepal Telecom (NT) remained disturbed today in the Kathmandu Valley affecting thousands of service seekers.
As a result, phone calls within NT’s network, messaging and internet services faced disturbances especially after 2:00 pm today. However, NT officials have claimed that the problem had been resolved by today evening itself.
Prativa Baidhya, spokesperson for NT, informed that disconnection in the Sundhara-Patan optical fibre link of Nepal Telecom resulted in the disturbance in the telecom’s network for a few hours. “Following complaints, we immediately deployed our technical team to address the issue. There is no problem in the NT network now,” she informed.
However, it is not for the first time that NT’s network has faced disturbances. NT has been subject to criticism time and again for its failure to deliver quality services. In this regard, Minister for Communications and Information Technology Gokul Prasad Baskota had told The Himalayan Times a week back that NT needs to improve the quality of its services if it wants to remain competitive in the domestic market.
