Nepal has made significant advancements in the field of communication. The internet is now widely available in every single corner of the country.

Telephone, Mobile phone, and Fax
Nepal is currently covered by three telecom service providers: Nepal Telecom, Ncell, and SmartCell.These service providers give a good level of service, which is improving regularly. After completing the registration form, you can obtain a SIM card from any of these providers for around 100 Nepali rupees. You may recharge your phone in amounts of 50,100,200, and 500. Mobile phones are widespread and may be seen in the hands of almost everyone in the country. Because long-distance telephone calls are costly, you may make them use a mobile phone.
