Ncell Data packs price detail internet packages plans validity volume 4G

Ncell is the second-largest telecom service provider in Nepal and has excellent network coverage throughout the country. More importantly, Nepal’s governing telecommunication authority NTA’s test declared that Ncell has the fastest mobile internet among other telcos. So, if speed and accessibility are of the essence to you, Ncell is the one to go for. And in this article, we will be taking a look at all the data packs or internet packages that Ncell has to offer in detail; including price, volume, and validity period. All the prices on the list are inclusive of taxes.

How to activate internet settings in Ncell?

There used to be a time when activating the internet on your phone used to be a hassle. But those days are long gone. At present, almost all of the SIM cards come internet-enabled. But if you encounter any problem, you can manually activate internet in your Ncell SIM by going through any the following steps:

  • Type ‘A’ and send a text message to 900224
  • Dial 900 and follow the instructions provided
  • Run *100# USDD code and follow the instruction

For Ncell’s internet settings, type ‘ALL’ and send a text message to 9595.

Ncell Pay As You GO (Ncell PAYG)

Ncell PAYG, as the name implies, is when you turn on your data without subscribing to any data packs. The normal rate of data is Rs. 2 per 1MB. However, Ncell is providing bonus data relative to the balance you spent surfing the internet. For eg, you will receive 2MB bonus data if you spend Rs. 2, and its bonus goes on increasing from there. Basically, you are getting 2MB bonus data for the first 1MB spent as Ncell charges Rs. 2 per MB.

Rs. 20 2MB + 5MB + 10MB + 20MB

After you have spent over Rs. 20, you will get 20MB for every Rs. 10 spent. The spend is calculated on weekly basis starting from Sunday till Saturday.
