KATHMANDU, May 6: Nepal Telecom has started 5G test in Pokhara and Birgunj after Kathmandu. The government initially planned to conduct tests in four cities including Kathmandu, Pokhara, Birganj and Biratnagar. However, due to American pressure on the use of Chinese technology in 5G, Nepal Telecom has not been able to speed up the testing process.
