"The process of acquiring internet bandwidth from China has been completed. The commercial operation of the Nepal- China optical fibre link will begin from Friday, said Prativa Baidhya, spokesperson for NT.
The details will be made public after a formal inauguration tomorrow, she added.
With successful test transmission, Nepal will now be commercially connected with Chinese bandwidth, according to the official.
Chinese internet will be supplied via Rasuwagadhi gateway, according to sources at NT.
Nepal is currently linked to the global internet connectivity through Indian telecom operators via different optical fibre connections in Biratnagar, Bhairahawa and Birgunj, among others, the Himalayn Times reported.
Besides ending the monopoly of bandwidth supply, the Chinese Internet gateway is also expected to facilitate service providers in Nepal to establish bandwidth connection with other countries via China.
