Sovereign South Asian country makes steps to bring fifth generation broadband and mobile services.
Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has approved 5G frequency, paving the way for 5G services in the country.
Meen Prasad Aryal spokesperson at NTA said the proposal was presented to the National Radio Frequency Policy Determination Committee for the approval of the 5G frequency determined by the authority.
According to Aryal, based on the recommendation made by the forum, the frequencies – 700, 900, 2300 and 2600 megaHertz bands under the low band, 3300, 3400, 3600 and 4100 mega Hertz under the medium band and 26 giga Hertz band under the high band – have also been included in the list.
It will be fixed whether the service-providers will be allocated the frequencies only after the decision of the National Radio Frequency Policy Determination Committee which has the Minister for Communications and Information Technology as the coordinator.
The NTA had been given the responsibility of conducting a study for the expansion of 5G to the National Frequency Management Forum under the coordination of NTA Board Member Mani Chaulagian.
