Service providers can apply to the NTA for authorisation to test new technologies such as 5G, Machine to Machine, and the Internet of Things (IoT). According to NTA Chairman Purushottam Khanal, the approach has assured that Nepal has the required regulations in place to test new technology.
“New technology, such as 5G, is ready for the market. Any service provider is now welcome to test 5G and other internet technologies in Nepal.” The procedure has clarified how new technology is tested. To do so, service providers must first submit an application to NTA for testing.
Information on new technologies, test locations, services to be supplied, details of testing frequencies, and network connection and operating schedule should all be included in the application.
