The Nepalese telecommunications regulator has agreed to allow foreign airlines to provide internet service to their passengers through the Nepali sky.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the Nepal Telecommunications Authority’s board of directors on March 22. A business willing to offer service to passengers will use frequencies above 10,000 feet from the surface, according to the ruling.
The usage of the internet below 10,000 feet, on the other hand, could have an effect on the frequencies used on the surface, according to the authority.
Three international airlines have recently requested such permission from Nepal.
