Nepal Telecom reduces roaming tariff for calls/SMS and data in India and Thailand

Nepal Telecom has significantly lowered roaming charges for its customers in India and Thailand. Ntc prepaid and postpaid SIM users will now be able to dial and receive calls, exchange SMS, and browse data at much lower rates helping Nepalese abroad to stay connected to their family and friends. Find more details below.

The new Nepal Telecom roaming charges in India and Thailand is effective from May 17, 2023, the ITU Day 2023.

In telecommunication, roaming is a type of service that allows subscribers to continue to use the service through an operator’s network abroad. Likewise, many Nepalese use Ntc roaming services by carrying a prepaid or postpaid SIM card to stay connected to their dear ones back home. But the cost of roaming had been too “high”. But the government-backed operator has addressed it by slashing the rates by a huge margin.
