Nepal Telecom(NT), the government-owned telecom company, has been successful to provide telecom services in 10 different remote areas of the country using NTSAT terminals.
Since the upcoming provincial and house of representative elections is about to close, the government had asked NT instantly manage the services in all the unconnected areas.
NT started its work about two weeks before, and now 10 areas in four districts; Darchula, Jumla, Kalikot, and Humla, have operational telecom services.
The 10 areas are Byas Nagarpalika, Naugadh Nagarpalika, Api Himal Village in Darchula, Kadka Sundhari Gaupalika in Jumla, Mahawai Gaupalika in Kalikot, and Changkheli, Kadakot and Karpunath of Humla. Among them, Changkheli of Humla is the last one to get the services.
