How UTL is the Best ISP in Nepal

Until a year ago I was using Internet from Pokhara Internet Pvt. Ltd., a local Internet service provider (ISP), at 1,180 Rs. a month with a bandwidth of 128kbps. Though the service was somewhat improved and satisfying as they shifted from cable to wireless, frequent technical problems (regarding the connection) were still rife. Later, they grew increasingly grouchy to slightly overdue payment, too.

1,200 Rs. a month for a mediocre connection? That was a total rip-off. I thought I was ponying up way too much for a service that was not really worth it.

And last year I goodbyed Pokhara Internet Pvt. Ltd. (shortly Pinet) after nearly 6 years with them. I was one of the original subscribers at Pinet. By the time I ditched it, there were not more than 60 active users.

Later I was suggested by a friend to instead use UTL’s Internet service through its CDMA data card. Initially hesitated, I gave it a shot and till today I’m married to it!

565 Rs. a month for a connection of 128kbps? WTF. UTL Nepal is cheapest and probably the best ISP in Nepal. Technical hitches are almost not felt and even if such hitches occur, they’re fixed within minutes. You cannot get such a good yet budget service with unlimited downloads/uploads from any ISP in Nepal, can you? Even after a year in this rapidly evolving tech- age, a 128kbps connection still costs more than 1,000 Rs. at most ISPs. That’s a daylight robbery.

A few months back I’d read a newspaper report on dwindling business of ISPs in the face of marauding entry of big telecom companies such as Nepal Telecom, UTL and Ncell into the Internet market. These telecom companies with reach almost all over Nepal are eating away at the ISP’s share of Internet market. Many of such ISPs are going out of business and closing down.

Unlimited 128kbps connection at just 565 Rs. UTL rocks!

  1. Using data SIM throug modem is bit slow and sometimes its unable to open web page so I tried through BSNL set phone realy its quite fast. Hope u may try. Thanks

  2. I have also been using UTL’s Internet service and its been 2 straight months. Recently I planned to swtich to another ISP, Worldlink undoubtedly was the first option to go for but it hesistated me cuz the minimum price was sort of 1000/- above for 128kbps line plus the installation charge of 4000/- that really rips off ur pocket. I contacted other ISP’s Subisu, Broadlink, Websurfer and all were the same, to be defined in nutshell -money vampires – they are good only for corporate use. After searching for ISP that would provide me internet for reasonable cost I ended up resorting to UTL. So here it is, I even post this thread using UTL. UTL is best for browsing facebook, google etc and downloading files that are of order 5mb and less. If you wanna download large heap of files through torrents, browse youtube you will certainly need other ISP and broadband data plans.In that case go for NT ADSL or Worldlink 256kbps and over.

  3. Right Chandan. I’ve been using UTL for one and half year and I’m not thinking about opting for another ISP. And I’m also an avid Bittorrent user. In this one and half year I think I’ve downloaded more than 300GB of data, of course from UTL. Maybe because my computer stays turned on most of the time. Glad u also are an avid UTL user. Regards.

  4. I am using UTL wireless internet. I purchased UTL data usim from local shop. for 850/- with one month unlimited internet. I have good network strength in My area ie Nawal Parasi, lumbini. I am staying in remote area. so wireless is only the solution. As compared to NCELL, NTC or Sky. Utl proved to be the cheapest and best for me. speed is around 13.8 kbps.I use internet in desktop through internet mobile ie huawei c2900i. Practically i am saving 1000 box per month due to utl. i recommend utl to increased the speed with best revised rate.

  5. I agree. Revisions to both price and speed could be way better. UTL should go broadband now.

    If in kilobits, then the speed will be 12kbps(kilobytes).
