The modern era is the era of the Internet.
Whoever said this hit a bullseye. This statement is so true that unless you are living in a rural area, which we assume that a lot of you are not, a few hours without the internet will cost you a lot– be it in entertainment, education, or career.
So all of us more or less agree that the internet is an important part of our lives. But when it comes to the question of who is the best ISP (Internet Service Provider) in Nepal, the opinions vary. Some say it’s NTC, some say it’s Vianet and Some say it’s CG Net.
Regardless of which one you chose, you need to buy the data packs, be it in packages or monthly payment systems. If you opt to buy internet data in monthly payment packages then you have nothing to worry about. But if you are among those who buy internet data in Packages, you might need to worry about running out of Data Volume time and again.
How do you do it? Well, the process depends on the ISP (Internet Service Provider) you are currently using. Here we will talk about “How to check remaining data on NTC – one of the most popular internet service providers in Nepal.
The Process to Check Remaining Data in NTC
If you are using the internet on NTC for any period, you should be aware that NTC doesn’t have a single means of providing internet. It provides internet for both mobile phones and computers using cellular data, mobile data, and wifi. That’s more than simple means for data packages.
Due to this, the process of checking the remaining data depends on the type of internet service you are using.
1) The process to check Data on an NTC Sim card
To check the remaining data on the NTC GSM Sim card you can either use the USSD or SMS. Additionally, you can also check the remaining data on the NTC GSM sim card through the use of the application. So you can check the remaining data volume through the use of:
- USSD By Dialing *1415*55# and calling
- SMS By sending “VL” to 1415
Application by downloading the Nepal Telecom Mobile app and registering your member.
Additionally, all of these methods except for the USSD code works on CDMA SIM cards as well.
2) The Process to check Data on NTC ADSL, WiMax and FFTH
For those who are wondering what these are, they are just the types of internet services that are meant for computers. While Wifi is not specifically meant for computers, they are included here as well as all you need to enable and disable a Wifi is to change the type of modem used.
While a bit back in time, the billing system of each of these varied. As a result, you needed to remember the process to check NTC data for each of these types of internet. But ever since NTC upgraded their billing system you can use a single system to fit the remaining data in NTC for all of these services.
To check the remaining data in NTC for these internet services, you can use
I) Via Self Care Login
To check the remaining data in NTC using this service, all you need to do is go to the website, log in your registered number and ID. Once you have logged in all you can see your remaining volume by clicking on your Network Type.
While this service is mostly used to check the remaining data volume of FFTH (fiber optics) services, you can use this service to check the remaining volume of GSM and CDMA as well. But it is easier to just send a two-letter text to a pre-typed number rather than doing this.
Side Note* You cannot use this service to check the remaining data in NTC if you use ADSL or WiMAX.
II) Via Sms
SMS is one of the best means to check the remaining internet data in NTC. You don’t need an ID or an internet connection. As long as you have some balance in your SIM card and a usable network, you can easily do it.
To Check the remaining Volume of NTC by SMS all you need to do is:
- For ADSL: Type VL*NTADSL<your phone number> and send it to 1415
- For WiMAX: Type VL*NTWIMAX<your customer ID> and send it to 1415
- For FFTH: Type VL*NTFFTH<your customer ID> and send it to 1415
And these are all the processes that you need to know if you want to check the remaining data in NTC
As you may have seen the method to check the remaining data in NTC is a relatively simple one and you have a few ways to do so. But before you check the remaining internet volume in NTC, you need to buy the Data first and enable NTC data service.
