KATHMANDU, March 23: Vianet Communication, an internet service provider, has announced the launch of Nepal's first multi-gig Internet connection based on the latest XGS fiber technology with the unveiling of its 2Gbps XGS- Extreme package. With this revolutionary technology, Vianet Communication aims to set a new standard for internet connectivity in the country.
XGS-PON which stands for 10 Gigabit Symmetrical Passive Optical Network, is the latest fiber-optic broadband technology that delivers up to 10 Gbps download and upload speeds. Currently, Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology is the primary method used for Internet distribution which has a maximum download speed of 2.4 Gbps and an upload speed of 1.2 Gbps. While this is sufficient for most users, for extreme users and businesses who require higher bandwidth, especially high upload speeds, XGS-PON can provide symmetric upload and download speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
According to Vianet Communication, they have chosen this technology to provide the first 2 Gbps internet service. This enables customers to experience lightning-fast download as well as upload speeds, seamless streaming, and superior gaming
performance. This also positions the company to be future-ready for applications such as virtual reality, high- resolution video streaming, simultaneous streaming from multiple devices, and cloud computing.
With the XGS-Extreme line of products currently available in selected areas of Kathmandu Valley, Vianet commits to increasing the coverage of its XGS products all over the valley soon.
“We are excited to bring the latest technology to Nepal and provide the fastest internet service in the country. This launch is a testament to our commitment to bring the best-in-class innovation and services to our customers,” said Sewa Pathak, CEO of Vianet Communication.
