Issuing a press release, the company said that with the expansion of new optical technology, it will be easier for W-Link customers to access HD, Ultra HD video (4k) and internet TV, among other services.  

"Currently, the company is using 10G optical. It will be expanded up to 100G which will help provide sufficient bandwidth (internet-network)," acting Director of World Link Vijay Jalan informed.

According to Jalan, this is the first time that any service provider is expanding the internet network up to 100G capacity with others in Nepal currently having four-five equipment having capacity of 10G.

He further said that such technological expansion would help provide internet to customers as per their requirement.  With this, the customers using 5 Mbps may get 7-8 Mbps at the same price.

The company, that has a total of 120,000 customers, is also planning to expand its high-speed internet services to its customers in Kathmandu as well as outside the valley.

    While Nepal should address voices that question the constitution, it should not undermine the document’s dignity and longevity if the country wants to establish a constitutional culture. No constitution can fulfill all wishes. The drafters of the present constitution should not feel guilty in not securing the consent of all citizens. If the constitution is not fundamentally discriminatory, it has chances to grow further.
