China Telecom Global Limited (CTG) has partnered Nepal Telecom to deliver IP services in Nepal via the Jilong (Rasuwa) Gateway.

The route, which was launched this year, will connect China and Nepal. It will be a direct alternative route for high volumes of traffic in Nepal. The service will also provide end users in Nepal with a high quality and low latency solution..

"The China-Nepal route could provide service to Nepal and transit service from India. China Telecom has put tremendous effort into building the route through the Himalayas. We are committed to delivering a state of the art route for Nepal Telecom," said Ou Yan, Executive Vice President, CTG.

Kamini Rajbhandari, Managing Director of Nepal Telecom, added:  "Nepal Telecom would benefit from an additional route for connectivity. We are confident that China Telecom would provide reliable service and are looking forward to establishing Nepal as a transit hub through this route."
