Ntc launches 2G mobile service in Nara Lake, Namkha
Nepal Telecom (NTC) has launched GSM 2G mobile services in Nara Lake, Namkha Rural Municipality-5 after constructing a cell tower. The launch of the service made it easy for nearby residents to communicate via the legacy reliable mobile network.
Sunam Tamang, a resident of Yari village near Nara Lake, shared his joy after Ntc launched the service. He said the 2G tower has facilitated mobile communications in the region.
Previously, people had to climb the high hill to receive signals from a cell tower in Iling. Mobile phone users in Nara and Yari now have a strong signal from a 2G network in their own area.
