KATHMANDU: The government has intensified laying optical fibers in line with the ambition set by the Digital Nepal Framework.

Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has mobilized the Rural Telecommunications Development Fund to expand the broadband internet service across the country.

Works on it have been completed in sixty districts under 15 packages out of 18. Similarly, fifty percent of works were completed in 10 districts under two packages.

On June 13, 2016, the NTA had decided to use the Fund in order to reach the broadband internet service to the community schools, campus, health post, agriculture center, tourism center, each ward, and public places. The internet service is launched in four districts via a single package with the completion of more than 30 percent of the works.

Even the monitoring and evaluation of the six projects were conducted, said NTA Spokesperson, Santosh Poudel. Similarly, monitoring and evaluation of two projects were also underway.

The NTA further said mid-hill highway and district headquarters are being connected to the internet under the information superhighway project.

Under the first package (Province 1, 2, and Bagmati Province), works have been launched by forging an agreement with Nepal Telecom. As per the agreement, an extension of optical fibers would complete in two years.

So far, the optical fibers have been laid on 1,006-km (46.16%) length. Under the first package, an agreement was made to lay the optical fibers on 2,179-km length.
