Is your smartphone 4G compatible?
The government owned telecom, Nepal Telecom is all set to launch Fourth Generation for connectivity today. The Minister of Communication will inaugurate the service in an event at Soltee Hotel, Kathmandu. Currently, the 4G service will be available only in the Kathmandu Valley and Pokhara.
After the service is made live, the customer will be able to use 32.4Mbps speed of the internet. Later on, the telecom plans to make it 80Mbps.
However, all SIM cards and smartphone are not compatible. Either you have to buy a new SIM or new smartphones. Actually, if your SIM card is older than 4 years, it will not support the 4G. However, the telecom will provide upgrade SIM card with your old number.
Here is lists
Well, here are 15 brand’s smartphones that are compatible with the new Fourth Generation Connectivity. However, in the case of the iPhones, iPhone after 4s (ie. iPhone4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone6s/6s Plus and iPhone 7/7Plus) are compatible with the Fouth generation. But, due to the negligence of the authorities of the NTC, they haven’t had a contract with the Apple. Unless the Apple enables the location for NTC iPhone users won’t be able to use the 4G service. According to authorities of NTC, they have contacted with the Apple to enable location but due to the holiday season, it might take some time.
