Nepal Telecom has implemented the new domestic interconnection fee. The “Interconnection fee” applicable to customers of any telecommunication service provider when making telephone and SMS calls to customers in the network of another telecommunication service provider was issued by the Telecommunication Authority of Nepal. As per the provision mentioned in the Domestic Interconnection under the Interconnection Guideline 2076 issued by the Telecommunication Authority of Nepal, Nepal Telecom has implemented it from 18th Magh, 2078.
The revised tariff rate has been approved by the Telecommunication Authority of Nepal as per the decision of the Nepal Telecommunication Authority on 16th and 18th Magh, 2078. The revised tariff rate will be implemented from 18th Magh, 2078 (i.e. 1st February, 2022).
After the implementation of the new Domestic Interconnection fee, the tariff rate will be modified and the charges will be reduced when the customer in the network of one service provider calls the customer in the network of another service provider. Accordingly, the tariff rate will be only Rs. 1.1 per minute when calling another service provider’s mobile from the company’s wired phone. Similarly, calls from the company’s GSM, CDMA and C-Phone PostPaid to another service provider’s network will be charged at Rs 1.08 per minute and calls from the company’s GSM, CDMA and C-phone prepaid services to another service provider’s network will be charged at Rs. 1.62 per minute. And CDMA service postpaid and prepaid for sending messages to other service providers’ network will be charged at Rs. 1.1 per message.
Note: The above-mentioned rate does not include the tax amount applicable.
