Nepal Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Nepal Telecoms Market Overview and Statistics Report
Nepal’s telecommunications sector is small but growing. Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world. Amid an unsettled political climate, the country has been moving towards a more liberalised telecom market. By April 2006, over 170 operators had been authorised to provide a wide range of telecom services, including two for basic telephony (Nepal Telecom and United Telecom Ltd) and two for mobile telephony (Nepal Telecom and Spice Nepal Pvt Ltd). In addition, the licensing of a relatively large number of ISPs, combined with the liberalisation of the VSAT data market, has created excellent conditions for the Internet to thrive in Nepal. This report looks at the overall state of telecommunications in Nepal and provides a selection of pertinent market statistics.

Broadband, ICT and Consumer E-Commerce in Nepal

September 2013 Review

In its latest Education Sector Report, ADB (Asia Development Bank) recommends more emphasis on more responsive investment in ICT, and in science and technology. ADB is working to foster an environment that encourages its developing member countries (DMCs) to take up the latest technology in a way that will be financially sustainable, encourage still further innovation, and expand use of ICT into poorer, more remote areas. Education systems in the region can be radically improved through intelligent use of innovative ICT, appropriate training for teachers and sector managers, and support to centers that nurture new ideas.
