September 16: Nepal Telecom has announced the distribution of e-SIM to its customers starting from September 15. The state-owned telecom company has decided to distribute free e-SIM from its counter in Sundhara, Kathmandu.
Postpaid and prepaid customers of the company who are currently using SIM cards can change such physical cards into e-SIMs for free, said NT spokesperson Shovan Adhikari. Customers will however need a mobile set that supports e-SIM.
