Telecom Industry, Same as always


Although this statement,”Once upon a time, the power of the entire media world was in the hands of one or two telecom companies. The said companies defined the market.” Is relevant to the global environment, it does not mean much to Nepal. Because Nepal’s telecom sector has become a prisoner of the interests of one or two companies.


In other words, a kind of monopoly has been established. While the monopoly of telecom in other countries is becoming a matter of history, the current pain is becoming in Nepal.


Due to neoliberalism, competitive legal system and ease of licensing, new ‘players’ have emerged in the telecom industry market in neighboring countries as well. An atmosphere of fierce competition is developing among the old and new players to cover new opportunities in telecommunications. In Nepal, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) and international voice service providers are emerging with the exception of Internet services.


Some of the best scenarios seen in Nepal are in the field of internet services and cable TV. Both of these services are in the race to expand as a combination of broadband and TV. But despite the talk of infrastructure and independent tower companies, they have not yet come into existence. Due to COVID-19, this area has been developing at a fast pace lately. The various powers are working together to reshape the region.


The epidemic has dealt another blow to a company that has been suffering from a weak financial situation for some time. According to a survey conducted by Delta Partner on telecom players around the world, the annual revenue of such companies will decrease by 10 percent.

Telecom Industry, Same as always


But according to recent statistics, Nepali telecom companies have to pay a very high price. Ncell lost more than Rs 4.5 billion in revenue in the second quarter of 2020 alone.


Similarly, the state-owned telecom company Nepal Telecom has lost about Rs 2 billion in revenue. This epidemic has increased the dependence on the Internet for everything. It has also pushed for broadband expansion, including gigabyte connectivity, and to lead its nation in 5G.


For work, study, shopping, entertainment, etc., Kovid has not only increased the pressure on the Internet, but also forced operators to spend on capacity building and network strengthening. However, it has also prevented companies from investing in new and expanded network areas.


Due to which, consumers are complaining about the quality of service. According to the European Five Observatory, the liberal policy regime also makes it easier for companies to make spectrum available for local use.

NEA's explanation to Ncell saying why action will not be taken on the issue of swindling Rs 122 crore from customers

A study has shown that private mobile service provider Ncell has collected more than Rs 1.22 billion from customers in defiance of the regulatory body’s directives. Earlier, Tekpana had made public the news that various services and packs were automatically renewed without the customer’s approval and the money was refunded after the customer complained.
The study was conducted by the Nepal Telecommunications Authority on the basis of the news and complaints from customers. According to the study, Ncell has collected around Rs 1.22 billion from customers.

Chairman Purushottam Khanal informed that the Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTAA) had written a letter to Ncell on September 5 asking why it would not take action on the basis of the study report. According to him, Ncell was initially given three days for clarification.
However, the company has demanded an extension of one week due to Covid-19. “We have asked Ncell for an explanation as to why it is not taking action. If his answer is not satisfactory, we will take action.

Earlier, as per the decision of 14 September 2075, NEA had instructed Ncell to stop the automatic renewal of value added service (VAS) on 15 September 2075. However, a study has found that the company has continued to disobey the directive for the past two years.

According to the study report, Ncell had introduced this type of service since 1974 BS. However, the study only includes data from June 2075 to April 2077.

During that period, the company has earned a total of Rs 2.22 billion through daily, three-day, weekly and monthly packs of services like Gameloft and App Gallery.

According to Section 47 (1) of the Telecommunications Act, 2053, a fine of Rs 50,000 has been imposed on the service recipients. Why not compensate the service recipients by collecting the big amount of Rs 1.22 billion? ‘The NEA has sent a letter of explanation to Ncell.

According to NEA sources, the number of customers who will automatically renew their services in three days at Ncell under Gameloft is 1.954 million. Similarly, the number of customers who renew automatically in a week is around one lakh 11 thousand.

The Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF), an Indian television channel, has urged the Government of Nepal not to implement the Clean Feed Policy for another six months. The IBF has written a letter urging not to apply clean feed in the current situation of Covid-19.

The IBF has sent a letter to the Secretary of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Hari Prasad Basyal, urging him to postpone the implementation of the policy for six months in view of the current dire situation.

The letter said, “We understand that the Advertising (Regulation) Act of the Government of Nepal will come into force on October 26, 2076.” The world is now plagued by epidemics. There is logging in some places in India as well as Nepal. In the midst of this lockdown, six months have passed since the implementation. Therefore, we request to postpone the implementation of the policy for six months. ‘


“At present, our members are not able to go out and work with vendors, conduct technical tests and implement them,” said IBF secretary Radhakrishnan in a letter. There is no way to connect the box. ‘


But the ministry seems ignorant in this regard. Ministry Secretary Basyal said he had not received any such letter. He said, “No letter has been received from the ministry in this regard. There is no need to talk about anything without any information. ‘
