Good news folks. WorldLink is soon to upgrade its fiber internet with the help of a new infrastructure build by the company and Nokia together. The new 100G optical network service — the first of its kind in Nepal — will offer blazing speed for smooth browsing and stream even 4K videos online. For reference, current internet standards allow a FULL HD video of 1080p resolution to run without buffering. The new system can even allow a 4K video to run without hiccups. Though, we can only confirm after the services are active.

As stated both WorldLink and Nokia are upgrading 650-km-long backbone network with Nokia’s 1830 PSS (Photonic Service Switch) DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology to support bandwidth-consuming entertainment and enterprise services across the country. The network will extend from Kathmandu to Bhairahawa and Birgunj, and provides international connectivity between Nepal and other countries including India.”
WorldLink has a commitment to Nepal to transform the communications landscape so that our people and enterprises thrive. This is our largest project to date and it will allow us to provide ultra-fast broadband services for our mobile and fixed network subscribers in cities as well as rural areas across the country.

This also signals that the services will not be only limited to the capital city and sub-metropolitan cities. Though, that is yet to be confirmed.
- The biggest-ever project by the operator upgrades 650-km-long backbone network providing super-fast international connectivity between Nepal and other countries including India
- The ultra-fast network will allow people to enjoy highest quality services including HD video, 4K video, and Internet TV
- The network will use Nokia’s 1830 PSS – Powered by its PSE-2s, the industry’s most programmable chipset – for flexible increasing capacity, reach and density
