Like around a month ago, Nepal Telecom (NTC) launched 4G for the first time. But finding the service to be limited to Postpaid users only, prepaid users were really disappointed. However, it was certain that prepaid users could upgrade to 4G but the date wasn’t certain till yesterday. Now, any prepaid users within a network of Kathmandu and Pokhara can upgrade to 4G service.
How to activate 4G in NTC (Prepaid/Postpaid)
Activating 4G is simple. All you need to do is go to your phone dialer and dial ” *444# “. A new dialog box will appear asking you to enter “1” to confirm. After the moment you press 1 and hit send, you’ll get a notification message from NTC. The Notification message will say something like, “4G promo-pack is activated”. The good news is, this activation of 4G is totally free. No activation charge needs to be paid.
What is in the 4G_Promo_Prepaid pack?
The 4G_Promo_Prepaid pack will be valid for 4 days (96 hours) after the activation. You can use free data worth 100MB every day. But once you exceed the data limit for that day, regular charges will be applied to your data usages. Well, free 100MB every day is also a good deal but not as good as 1GB every day that was for the Postpaid Users.
Dear NTC, Why is such biases among your own subscribers? Why?
I personally activated 4G in my Prepaid Number. The experience was satisfactory. I felt the change in speed. As a test, I tried playing a YouTube video in 1080p and it buffered the video insanely fast. Just activate the 4G_Promo_Prepaid for your number and experience the fast connectivity yourself. But before activating, make sure your mobile supports 4G LTE Network Band 3 (1800MHz).
