According to Apnic’s statistics, the highest number of Internet users is seen in WorldLink Communications Limited.

 Telecom and Internet services in the epidemic: a disaster & an opportunity


The Internet and the telecommunications sector are always busy, while COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on everyone. During this period, some are facing high pressure of service consumption. Some people are trying to make new customers while others are losing existing customers.


Many service providers have not been able to provide services to the customers due to supply problems including fiber, devices, recharge cards and there is also a problem in expanding new customers. There are many complaints from the service recipients due to lack of quality service. Covid has created both problems and opportunities for service providers.


Meanwhile, in a virtual interaction organized by the Economic Journalists’ Society on Thursday, participants talked about the aftermath and opportunities of COVID-19. Due to the global spread of COVID-19, the use of internet is also increasing in Nepal. The trend of data consumption has also changed as compared to the previous lockdown and now it is time to provide services to the citizens through electronic system by increasing investment in content along with connectivity.

“Internet is the only way to get information on new areas like e-learning, virtual meetings, study materials, entertainment,” said Sarakarwala. Director of the Nepal Telecommunications Authority, Vijay Kumar Roy, said that some online outlets were shut down in collaboration with the Press Council, the cyber directive was implemented and the NEA worked on an e-education package.


He feels that due to the activism of the service providers during the time of COVID-19, the complaints of the customers have not come as expected. Due to COVID-19, data consumption has increased tremendously in urban areas and connectivity problems in rural areas have also raised fears that the problem of digital divide will increase.


Rural telecommunications expert Pawan Shakya said the condition of both connectivity and content in the village was worse than in the city. There is an opportunity to choose a service in the city, there is a lot of people who can find and understand even in content. He said that the focus should now be on the rural areas. He also urged the people to be vigilant as the digital divi

de in rural and urban areas would become bigger in the future if the rural areas were not addressed.
