NTA Launches ‘Call Test’ and ‘Speed Test’ Apps

The Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has launched ‘Call Test’ and ‘Speed Test’ mobile applications on the occasion of its 22nd anniversary on March 3, 2020.

Minister for Communication and Information Technology (MoCIT) Yuba Raj Khatiwada launched the applications during the anniversary function in Kathmandu.

The NTA has launched mobile applications in response to the growing concerns of the consumers regarding voice call quality and internet speed.

With these mobile apps, the consumers can check the quality of their calls and internet speed at a touch, and can even raise a complaint.

NTA launched ‘Call Test’ and ‘Speed Test’ mobile applications

Call Test App:

  • Check call quality
  • Rate the service provider
  • Raise a complaint

Speed Test App:

  • Test the speed of internet, both mobile and fixed broadband
  • Check download and upload speed
  • Know details of service provider
  • Know the location of installation of internet
  • Know info regarding slow internet speed
  • File a complaint

“We are hopeful that this app will solve the problem of quality and speed of Internet as users can easily file complaint against the service provider,” said NTA Spokesperson Prasad Aryal.

“Now that the app has been launched, telecom operators will also take the issue seriously,” he added.

According to Aryal, the NTA is planning to release both the apps for Android and iOS platforms within few days.
