August 20, 2014

In order to import telecommunication equipment worth over Rs one billion and for spot frequency, Smart Telecom has sought the approval of the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA), with the aim to boost its mobile service after introducing it in the Kathmandu Valley.

Planning to soft launch the service in the Valley before Dashain based on unified permit, the telco is looking to install 200 plus base transceiver station (BTS).

This has led Smart Telecom to seek the NTA's approval for equipment import and micro wave frequency that builds connection between mobile towers in sites where no optical fibres or satellite links exist.

Deputy director of NTA, Dipesh Acharya, said : "Smart Telecom's application to import equipment is under consideration."

According to the NTA's record, the telco had purchased telecom equipment of Rs 7.86 million during last financial year, 2013-14.
