Vianet’s new offer: Internet & Redmi Note 8 Pro combo comes cheaper than the phone itself!

Lava International

Nepalese ISPs are getting aggressive! You have ClassicTech offering a ridiculous 10-months bonus on its 50Mbps annual package which honestly sounds too good to be true. Worldlink and Vianet have been neck-and-neck with their internet and TV combos for months! And now, the latter is looking to get ahead of the competition by bundling its internet subscription with the hottest smartphones in town – the Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro.

Both these devices are the undisputed performance champs in their respective price points. Additionally, the Redmi Note 8 and the Note 8 Pro also topped our list of top smartphones under Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 30,000 respectively. That should tell you something too! Now, Vianet has cleverly managed to come up with the “Kyaaa Lovely Offer!(cute name btw) which offers either of the aforementioned smartphones alongside its internet packages.

This offer also includes a free NETTV subscription of all channels and eSewa cashback of Rs. 250. Very interesting! Oh and if you’d rather go home with a TV, Vianet’s got you covered as well with either a Samsung 43-inch or a Skyworth 32-inch LED TV.

Verdict

Now, don’t those schemes look lucrative? They surely do! If you’re in the market for a new smartphone and a new internet subscription (or renewal of an existing one) as well, you must consider what Vianet is offering here. Not to mention, you can make a profit on some of the schemes which offer the phone and the internet package at a cost lower than that of the phone itself! I don’t know what kind of deal Vianet made with Mi Nepal, but they have my respect. This is a damn good offer!

But ultimately, if you are looking to install the internet at your house or office, you should consider another additional factor. How’s the service from the ISP you’re leaning towards in your local area? In other words, if available, follow up with your neighbors who have an existing subscription from the ISP. Because in the context of Nepal, the same internet provider has an excellent service in one area while simultaneously having a regretful one in some different area.
