Nepal residents from Friday formally started using the Chinese broadband after years of efforts but the skeptics over its durability still persist. The state owned Nepal Telecom and the China Telecom Global formally established the collaboration for the trans-border internet connection. The fiber link route, which now has entered Nepal via the Rasuwagadhi, is still to erase the doubt of people. Nepal is currently linked to the global internet connectivity through Indian telecom operators via different optical fiber connections in Biratnagar, Bhairahawa and Birgunj, among others. Meanwhile, the optional bandwidth from China is also expected to increase the competition between the various internet service providers in the country, reduce internet cost for consumers and boost the quality of internet in the country.
