China Telecom Global and Nepal Telecom have reached an agreement to deliver IP services in Nepal.

The companies will use the newly launched terrestrial cable route connecting China and Nepal via the Jilong (Rasuwa) Gateway.

The new China-Nepal route is a new direct alternative route for traffic demand generated from Nepal to all over the world, and provides high quality service and low latency for end users in Nepal. 

“China Telecom is dedicated to expanding our footprint by connecting with neighbouring countries,” said Ou Yan, executive vice president of China Telecom Global. The company said it has been fully committed to developing terrestrial cable connecting to neighbouring countries. 

“The China-Nepal route could provide service to Nepal and transit service from India. China Telecom has put tremendous effort into building the route through the Himalayas. We are committed to delivering a state of the art route for Nepal Telecom.”

Kamini Rajbhandari, managing director of Nepal Telecom, added: “Nepal Telecom would benefit from an additional route for connectivity. We are confident that China Telecom would provide reliable service and are looking forward to establishing Nepal as a transit hub through this route.”
