Standard Chartered Bank Staffs in Lazimpat branch hurried out of the office with terror after an unidentified person called up and claimed that a bomb was planted at its premises on Sunday afternoon.
But it was found that the call was hoax when police reached the site along with sniffer dogs and bomb disposal unit and investigated.
The bank has resumed its operation after an hour and investigation into the bluff call is underway, informed by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Kedar Dhakal of the Metropolitan Police Range, Kathmandu.
Thamel Tourism Development Council (TTDC) has tied up with Mercantile Communications Pvt. Ltd. for turning Thamel, one of the famous tourist centres in Kathmandu, as the first Wi-Fi internet zone in Nepal with an aim to provide high-speed Wi-Fi internet service to tourists and entrepreneurs.
Mercantile CEO Sanjib Raj Bhandari and TTDC president Tejendra Nath Shrestha has signed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Friday and Mercantile has agreed to make technical and financial investment for the development of Wi-Fi facility.
According to TTDC president Shrestha, “though almost all the restaurants and hotels in Thamel are providing free Wi-Fi service, the quality is poor. So, the new Wi-Fi system will be of high standard and quality, and it will reduce the hassles faced by internet browsers.”
He said to Nepalnews, this agreement comes at the right time when the country is marking an ambitious tourism year.
Prachanda Man Shakya, corporate executive of Mercantile Communications, said this would be a contribution to Nepal Tourism Year-2011 from the private sector for the development of tourism through quality service. According to Shakya, the project will be in operation within a couple of months and the price will be around $1 per hour.
Let me first talk about call by-pass:
Now, why is the police against some ISPs accusing them of using their services to call by-pass?
If it is cheaper to call Nepal due to illegal call bypass, why is it bad?
Because it hurts the profit of large voice operators in Nepal and robs the government of resulting tax revenue.
If the large voice operators can’t keep up with the new technology – why should the government protect them?
The telecom operators should embrace internet and VOIP as new technology and find new revenue avenues in them instead of trying to stop them from coming in.
Next, why are ISPs punishing their own customers for government action?
