Continuing its Quality of Service (QoS) improvement drive, Ncell has improved its 4G service at the local level in different districts of the Madhesh and Gandaki provinces. With improved service, customers from over 30 locations in these provinces can now benefit from access to a better network and speed of 4G service.
This improvement is in line with Ncell’s commitment to ensure easy access to modern mobile broadband connectivity by expanding the 4G service. The 4G service has been improved in over two dozen localities of the Madhesh Province, making it easy for customers to benefit from access to further improved mobile broadband and connectivity. The areas where the 4G service has been improved include Aaurahi, Balwa, Bateshwor, Chandranagar, Janakpurdham, Loharpatti, Matihani, Mithila Bihari, Nahara, Nawarajpur, and Pipra, among others.
Similarly, customers can now experience a better 4G network in Anbukhaireni, Gharapjhong, Phedikhola, Pokhara, Putalibazaar, and Tarakhola of Gandaki Province. Ncell remains committed to improving the already-expanded 4G service in different parts of the country with the necessary investment, depending on the need for improvement. Recently, Ncell has improved its 4G service in various parts of Sudurpaschim Province and Lumbini Province.
Besides service expansion and network improvement, Ncell has also been bringing various attractive offers to ensure that customers get benefits from access to mobile broadband at an affordable rate. On Tuesday, Ncell launched three Double Majja Packs with prices starting at Rs. 150, enabling customers to enjoy a double data bonus on every repeat purchase of the same pack before the expiry of the pack’s validity.
As a responsible corporate citizen, Ncell has also implemented several corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects in Madhesh and Gandaki Provinces.
