However, the company focused to cable internet and now have launched CG NET, a fiber internet service in Nepal. Have a brief look at their packages, prices, and FUP in this article.

CG Net has also made clear about the detail its Fair Usage Policy (FUP).

 CG NET Coverage

Currently it provides services only in few areas of Lalitpur like Jawalakhel, Jhamsikhel, and Ekantakuna. Fortunately, it plans to expand to all three districts in Kathmandu Valley within a year. CG Net’s head office is situated at Trade Tower Business Center,Thapathali. CG NET will be extending its coverage to all over the Kathmandu valley in the upcoming months.

CG’s Strong Interest in Telecommunication Sector

CG NET already looks remarkable and no doubt CG has already invested heavily in this sector. Despite the intent and investment, Nepal Telecommunication Authority has been declining the unified license to CG Telecom citing that the company has not completed all of the legal procedures. The problem is the license fee. NTA is asking to pay NPR 20 billion in advance for the license. Nevertheless, the latter wants to pay it in installments declaring that the Doorsanchaar Ain allows it to do so.

Though CG has not been able to enter the telecommunication sector, they have shown a strong aim with their entry into the ISP market.
