Back on February 4, 2020, Nepal Telecommunications Authority scrapped CG Communications aka CG Telecom‘s limited mobility license. CG Telecom was held responsible for the same due to its inability to renew the license within the prescribed period. It was even denied the Unified License as it was said to be unable to expand service akin to limited mobility in eastern Nepal.
Following the denial, Chaudhary Group seemingly transferred its interest towards internet services, hence the Fiber Internet Service by the name CG NET. The data center is already in progress in Satungal, Kathmandu with reportedly above 25% of the job completed. Once done, it’ll serve all infrastructures that are required to operate the fiber internet service.
For now, CG NET is available in only a few places of Lalitpur districts — Jawalakhel, Jhamshikhel, Bhanimandal, and Ekantakuna in its first phase. Customers, similarly, can visit CG Digital outlets located in different parts of Kathmandu valley — Minbhawan, Trade Tower (Thapathali), Nayabazar, Kirtipur, Kumaripati, and Jawalakhel for customer service as well as to experience the internet.
The company looks forward to expanding the services across all places inside Kathmandu valley within a year with other parts of Nepal getting the service soon.
