Beijing: Nepal has now connected with China for Internet access. In Nepal, the use of Internet of China has begun since Friday. This is the first time that with the help of China's optical fiber lay out across the Himalayas; speed of 1.5 giga-bytes (GBPS) speed on the country's Resuwadi border will be available. However, these speeds are much lower than India's speed of 34 GBPS. Let us know that Nepal was completely dependent on India for the internet. However, after the signing of a MoU in 2016, Nepal had cleared the way for internet access from China.
Nepal's Information and Communication Minister Mohan Bahadur Basnet launched a Nepal-China cross border optical fiber link in a function on Friday.
Basnet said that establishing optical fiber links in China and Nepal is a milestone. This will increase the Internet infrastructure across the country.
At the same time, Ambassador Yu Hong of China said that both the countries have not only reduced the distance of the Internet connection, but also have created new capabilities for each other in business.
Let you know that in 2016 there was a memorandum of understanding sign between Nepal Telecom and China Telecommunication. Under this, there was a contract for high-speed internet in both the countries. According to officials, the speed of internet speed from China is still very low compared to India. Whereas, with the Chinese fiber link, the speed of 1.5 Gbps is getting on the Resuwadi border, while India's speed at 34 Gbps is at Biratnagar, Bhairahwa and Birgunj.
