Previously Ncell was dominating the Nepal’s cellular data market with attractive schemes and prepaid data packs. Data packs are now very famous in youth and many internet users. People use them to keep their consumption in budget and limit. Many people were demanding for NTC to start such service as well. NTC had unlimited 2G GPRS data pack for Post paid users only but now they have started this better service for prepaid also.
This is real positive step towards improving their service and upgrading. NTC was ordered to improve their service by the government this month. Prepaid data packs are very much famous and are mostly used by daily Facebook users. It is useful if you are addicted to these luxuries or you do your daily business and work using phone, email etc. If you are a normal guy who just opens data in emergency situation as alternative solution just to check an email or search something it is not for you. If you need this you have got what you wanted in a good price.
These prepaid data packages scheme of Nepal Telecom are available in three different packs known as Bronze, Silver and Gold. As their status in normal life their precedence also exist in same way here. These have been initiated since August 18th Tuesday and are gaining good response. Lets explain the packages below.
|Bronze Pack||Silver Pack||Gold Pack|
|200 MB Rs 130 -1 month||1 GB Rs 530 -1 month||5 GB Rs 1800 -3 month|
|500 MB Rs 300 -1 month||3 GB Rs 1290 -2 month||10 GB Rs 2800 -6 month|
The packages are solid and honestly Bronze pack is best for normal data pack hungry users because instead of paying Rs 1 per MB in regular surf, buying these pack will save a lot of money. The plans are made in a way that people buy more because higher you select the data , cheaper it gets in rate. You can check your remaining volume and pay mobile bill online from now on.
It is very easy to subscribe the data packs after you determine what you need. For example if you need 3 GB data plan then simply go to the message of you phone and type in “Data3GB” and send it to 1415. If you want small package, let’s say 500 MB type in “Data500MB” then send it. The price will be deducted from your account and the service will be open till validity expires. Type “VL” and send it to 1415 to know your status of data volume.
We have heard a new problem with this scheme. If you take new pack or subscription the data or validation isn’t increased. The should be shown while checking the balance, but even even *400# hasn’t been working well since 1 week.
The initiation is good but it would have been better if there were small packages like a 50MB Package which fits for small users. This can attract more people than big data packs. Ncell’s Facebook pack are famous for these reasons. Lets hope to see better package and deals from NTC. Tell us what you think on comments below.
