Wirefree Dongle are widely used in Gulf Country and remote area of India where wire collection is not available & difficulties in connection due to legal procedure (for international citizen).

In present context, cellular data from Ncell & Nepal Telecome share 40% of the total internet data transmission in Nepal. Rest 60% internet collection is shared by Worldlink Fibre, NTC Fibre, Classic Tech, Vianet, Subishu & other local ISPs of Nepal.
