When it comes to telecom service providers, NTC (Nepal Telecom Corporation) is the oldest player in Nepal. Every now and then, NTC brings new data packs and internet offers to lure the young generation to its side. Today, we will be taking a look at the latest internet plans in detail and see if they are actually helpful.
NTC Internet Rate without Data Packs
Data packs are meant to make data consumption cheaper and more affordable. So, we should start with the normal rates NTC charges you for the internet without data packs. NTC charges Rs. 1 per MB (without taxes). The rate is uniform over all platforms (post-paid and pre-paid) and network type (GPRS, 3G, and 4G).
NTC Data Packs: Volume, Price, & Validity
1. NTC e-Shikshyalaya Package
e-Shikshyalaya Package is the latest offer from NTC amidst the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. It is designed for students who are stuck at home and have to attend online classes. Teachers and faculty members are also eligible for this offer.
For subscription, the educational institution needs to prepare a list of its students and teaching staffs with their names and phone numbers and forward it to [email protected] for verification. Once you are verified, you will receive a message of confirmation from 1415. You can then dial *1415# to subscribe to the plan. Alternatively, the institution can also make the payment on behalf of the students and staff.

While Smart and Ncell don’t have any separate night pack, NTC is still offering them to their users. You can use the Night Pack between 11 PM and 6 AM. NTC offers both volume-based and unlimited plans under the night pack. If you are thinking of using an unlimited plan, you should be aware that the speed is throttled to 256 kbps once you consume over 1GB per night.

8. Social Media Pack
Why do you use the internet primarily for? I won’t be surprised if you say its mostly for social media. So, NTC has come up with data packs that can only be used to browse social media. You can use these plans on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and WhatsApp. However, you need to use the official apps of each social media platform.

9. Streaming Data Pack
If you are on data, video streaming can get really expensive. NTC has tried to bring that cost down with its Streaming Data Pack. It was a strategy by NTC to promote WOW TIME, which was a streaming app owned by NTC. However, with the app being discontinued NTC is slowly phasing out the plan. You can now use the plan to watch videos on Youtube.
