Dish Home Fiber Internet (Fibernet) Service
Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) has granted Dish Home to provide internet via fiber-optics and VSAT technology. The latter technology uses satellite transmission and will be used to connect rural areas to the internet. For now, Dish Home is providing the service in limited areas within the valley and thus, is using fiber optics.
The Fiber To The Home (FTTH) service by Dish Home is available in three areas of Kathmandu Valley. It is available in Bhainsepati, where the head office of the company is located. It has also been expanded in Kapan – Bouddha area. Similarly, Dish Home is also expanding the Fibernet service to the Tinkune – Baneshwor area with the help of Space-Time Network (local cable operator for SimTV).
