After disrupting the Nepali ISP market with its introductory 120Mbps internet, CG Net has now introduced a cost-effective 50Mbps plan. In this article, we will be discussing the new 50Mbps “Super Sasto Package” internet plan from CG Net along with its price, duration, availability, and fair usage policy.
CG Net 50Mbps “Super Sasto Package”
Ever since CG Net initiated its services with its 120Mbps internet, other ISPs have announced even higher bandwidth plans. This includes Subisu’s 150Mbps and Worldlink’s 300Mbps packages. However, not everyone needs such high bandwidth internet, and many users expressed their preference for affordable low bandwidth internet plans instead.
And it certainly seems like CG Net is catering to such users with this. Here, you have the flexibility to subscribe to monthly, tri-monthly, half-yearly, or yearly plans of its 50Mbps internet. The price is set to Rs. 649 per month, irrespective of the duration you sign up for.
Currently, only a few major ISPs like Classic Tech are providing 50Mbps internet for home users. Still, CG Net’s 50Mbps plan undercuts most of the competition’s 40 and even 60Mbps packages. We have prepared the following table for a more detailed comparison.
|CG Net||Worldlink (Dashain Offer)||Vianet (Dashain Offer)|
|1 month||Rs. 649||Rs. 1,850||Rs. 2,200||Rs. 1,850||Rs. 2,250|
|3 months||Rs. 1,947||Rs. 5,450||Rs. 6,450||Rs. 5,400||Rs. 6,600|
|6 months||Rs. 3,894||Rs. 7,900||Rs. 8,600||N/A||N/A|
|12 months||Rs. 7,788||Rs. 13,200||Rs. 14,400||Rs. 13,200||Rs. 15,000|
|Extras||N/A||Free NetTV, Wi-Fi Mobility||Free ViaTV|
Note: These prices are exclusive of 13% VAT.

Furthermore, you won’t have to pay installation and drop wire charges if you subscribe to CG Net. However, the company does levy charges on the router and refundable deposits. You will also have to pay extra if you want a dual-band router.
|1 Month||3 Months||6 Months||12 Months|
|Drop Wire Charge||Free|
|Single Band Router||Rs. 2,500||Rs. 2,000||Rs. 1,500||Free|
|Dual Band Router||Rs. 3,500||Rs. 3,000||Rs. 2,500||Rs. 2,000|
|Refundable Deposit||Rs. 500|
Fair Usage Policy (FUP)
Compared to the standard 120Mbps plan, CG Net’s 50Mbps Super Sasto Package has a lower data usage quota for Fair Usage Policy (FUP). You can enjoy the original bandwidth of 50Mbps as long as you are within the 1300 GB quota. If you pass the 1300 GB mark, the internet speed will be reduced based on the additional bandwidth volume you consume. Here’s a brief look at it:
|FUP Level||Data Usage Quota||FUP Speed Policy|
|Original data bandwidth||Up to 1300 GB||50Mbps (original speed)|
|Level 1||1300 – 1400 GB||50% of original speed|
|Level 2||1400 – 1500 GB||30% of original speed|
|Level 3||Upwards of 1500 GB||10% of original speed|
CG Net 50Mbps: Coverage, Limitations
CG Net certainly has super cheap internet plans, but the problem is that the company hasn’t been able to offer its service throughout the country. It has expanded to several new locations since its establishment around the Kathmandu valley, but that’s still incomparable to the coverage of other major ISPs in Nepal.

But the company has already laid the groundwork to introduce IPTV and video OTT services with its partnership with Indian telco giant Airtel.
