Leading internet service provider (ISP) Vianet Communication has launched Nepal’s first-ever 2 Gbps internet package backed by the XGS fiber technology. The multi-gig internet package is the “XGS-Extreme package”. With this revolutionary package, the private company aims to set a new standard for internet connectivity in Nepal.
So far, Nepal’s highest internet speed offered for residential users was 1 Gbps. Vianet has crushed the previous record to bring the tag to it with the blazing-fast 2 Gbps internet package.
The XGS-Extreme package is enabled by XGS-PON technology. It stands for 10 Gigabit Symmetrical Passive Optical Network. It is the latest fiber-optic broadband tech that is able to deliver up to 10 Gbps speeds. GPON is currently the go-to method to provide internet service which provides 2.4 Gbps speed at maximum. Its maximum upload speed capacity is 1.2 Gbps.
For normal users, the 2 Gbps speed is greatly ideal however, for most extreme users and businesses with higher bandwidth requirements, XGS-PON delivers symmetric upload and download speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The package is even more ideal for those who need high upload speeds.
