NEA to remove cable/internet wires from pole if arrears not cleared by Oct 1

KATHMANDU: The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has directed the internet, cable TV and telephone service providers to pay the arrears by signing a pole rental agreement.

Issuing an notice for the third time on Thursday, the NEA has warned to remove the wires and equipment hung by the service providers on its poles without any agreement after October 1.

The NEA had also issued a notice on September 14 saying that the service providers were using their electronic structure without any agreement and warned to remove the wires and equipment of the service providers who did not sign the agreement by October 1.

NEA has also warned that no services providers will be able to continue their services until agreement is renewed.

However, services providers have been saying that fare is too high and rise in pole rental fee will lead to hike in price of internet to customers. According to them, the fare which was Rs 250 earlier has now been increased to Rs 750.
