Why is 4G the Best Network in Nepal? Explained

If you are a Nepali who wants to know which network works the best for you, you have come to the right place. While the majority of people all around Nepal use the 4G network, there is also a reason why this network works the best for the Nepalese population.

In this article, we have briefed every possible thing that you will be needing to know if you are a network user and don’t know what to use. You will surely be given an insight into all the other networks as well. To know everything about different networks better, keep reading till the end of this article.

What is a 4G Network?

The G in 4G refers to Generation. Henceforth, the full form of 4G is the fourth generation. 4G network is far superior to 3G, 2G, and 1G networks considering all the aspects that a good mobile network must cover. While many people assume that a 4G network works only for a mobile phone, they are mostly wrong. A 4G network is there to provide reliable broadband internet for all mobile phones, tablets, computers, and laptops. The multi-functionality of a 4G network is something every data user appreciates.

It is obvious that the 4G network is better in speed and capacity as compared to the older generation networks. But how is it better than its predecessor 5G network? Well, the answer is simple. While a 5G network is not as accessible all around the world and people are yet to be familiar with the workings of the network, a 4G network surpasses all these limitations and automatically becomes a more preferable network.

Likewise, it is the predecessor to the 5G network. A 4G network promises a speed of 100 Mbps to its users. You can easily watch and access high-definition video, audio, and more with the help of a 4G network.

2G, 3G, and 5G Networks explained

Before you make your judgment on why or how the 4G network is the most preferable to use, you have to go through what 2G, 3G, and 5G networks really are.

2G, 3G, and 5G networks stand for second-generation, third-generation, and fifth-generation respectively. The data speed and capacity of all these networks vary from one another. With advancements in time and technology, the 3G network overpowered the 2G network, and the expansion in the use of the 4G network shortened the use of the 3G network. A 5G network has not been in the Nepali market for a long time. Hence, most Nepali people are still using 4G networks. In the same way, most of the phones that are available in Nepal don’t even include a 5G network connectivity.

2G, 3G, and 5G networks run at 64 Kbps, 2 Mbps, and 400 Mbps respectively.

Why is 4G the Best Network in Nepal?

For the people wondering, 4G is the best network in Nepal and we will be talking about every reason behind this. While many people still use 3G and 2G networks, they are also using LTE networks. Very few number of people are also using 5G but in the context of Nepal, 4G still remains superior.


As compared to 3G and LTE, a 4G network ensures a higher level of speed given the fact that LTE’s speed lies somewhere in between the speed of a 3G and a 4G network. If you live in a very heavily populated area, you might notice that there is a wide gap between the speed of the three networks. And, you are most likely to go for the latter network if you ever make a comparison.

In the same way, there are so many other reasons why you should choose to use a 4G network that we have listed below:

  • Network security is better and tighter in this network.
  • The capacity of this network is far higher.
  • The spectral efficiency of the network is superior.
  • It has a low cost per bit.
  • The bandwidth used by this network is higher.
  • Higher and better use of synchronization.
  • The network can be accessed globally which is a plus point for every mobile phone user in Nepal.
  • It has a seamless working capability with an air interface and a bunch of protocols.
  • Service portability.
  • This network is affordable keeping in mind what capacity it holds.
  • The usability of the network is higher than the older generation networks.


While many phones that are available in Nepal have already been providing an access to the superior 5G network, it is only safe for the majority of the Nepalese population to still rely on the 4G network. One of the main facts is its accessibility and availability in the Nepalese market. If you are one to get confused over what kind of mobile network to choose, you have hopefully gotten your answer in the context of Nepal.

However, all the networks that are available to us co-exist and are still working differently for everyone. So, the end choice is yours to make. While one thing might work for a certain person, it might be working differently for another.
