20 Km laying optical fibre to Nepal-China border point Rasuwagadi from Kathmandu via Galchhi of Dhading district and Dhunche of Rasuwa district had been completed long ago from Nepal side. The work was delayed for a month by Chinese side due to avalanches which killed one worker. Both the country will be optically connected through the Jilong (Rasuwa) border gateway.
Many social networking sites and google are banned in China but Nepal will not suffer from this as it will also be connected to bandwidth in Hong Kong via Chine Telecom GLobal (CTG). Talking to Republica English daily Shobhan Adhikari, a deputy spokesperson for the Nepal Telecom (NT) said “With Chinese companies entering the Nepali market, users here will be able to enjoy Internet at lower rates,”
Nepal was totally dependent on India on internet for long time which was connected through three southern cities Biratnagar, Birgunj and Bhairawa.
