BIZ BRIEF
High reach


Ncell has launched its high-speed internet service in Khumbu valley, below Mount Everest.

"We are very proud to announce the world's highest mobile data service," said Lars Nyberg, President and CEO of TeliaSonera, the majority owner of Ncell. Located at an altitude of 5,200 metres, the new 3G base station enables locals, climbers and trekkers to surf the web, send video clips and e-mails, as well as to call friends and family back home. Ncell says the rates are cheaper than that of an average satellite phone. TeliaSonera has decided to invest over 100 million dollars during 2011 to cover all 75 districts in Nepal.

Lucky scratch
Morang Auto Works, the sole distributor of Yamaha motorbikes, has launched 'Yamaha Note Chhapau Offer' which will entitle buyers of Yamaha SS125, YBR 125, Yamaha Enticer and Yamaha Alba YBR 110 to a scratch card. The cards offer a chance to win between Rs 5,000 and Rs 1 million.

Goodwill grows
Goodwill Finance opened its fifth branch at Indrachok, Kathmandu. The new branch will provide ABBS facility, remittance, fund transfer, locker and cheque transfer services.

Colourful win
Seventeen winners of Berger Paint's 'Berger Rangey-haat offer' were presented with their prizes. The scheme is still running but already a diamond necklace, eight Sony LCD TVs and 8 microwave ovens have been won.
