CG Net, the fastest growing ISP in Nepal, finally launched the long-awaited IPTV service in Nepal in an event today at Hotel Himalaya. The service is offered under the plan named “CG Net Jodi”.
With the CG Net Jodi package, customers can now access both the internet and IPTV from CG Net. The ISP launched the IPTV service in association with SkyCom.
During the event, Nirvana Chaudhary, managing director of CG Corp Global, said that CG NET is bringing the latest 10Gbps XGS-PON technology, mesh Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi 6 soon. Furthermore, he also said that CG Net is bringing low earth orbit satellite-based internet connectivity for remote areas in Nepal.
Similar to the CGNET Super Value Plan, the CG Net Jodi also includes three plans: Sprinter Jodi, Popular Jodi, and Rockstar Jodi. The Sprinter Jodi, Popular Jodi, and Rockstar Jodi offer 80Mbps + IPTV, 155Mbps + IPTV, and 305Mbps + IPTV, respectively.
In addition, as Nepal’s biggest festival, Dashain, and the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 are approaching, CG Digital, Chaudhary Group’s electronics e-commerce, also launched a campaign called “CG Grand Jodi.” This campaign offers the user to get a CG Smart TV along with the internet and IPTV.
“Normally, we know FTTH as Fiber-to-the-Home. As Dashain and the FIFA World Cup draw closer, we are changing the meaning of FTTH to Festival-to-the-Home and Football-to-the-Home. This is how we would like to define the CG Grand Jodi bundle.”
