Nepal has joined hands with China to offer internet services to its citizens, officials said on Friday, ending India’s decades-long monopoly of the Himalayan nation’s cyber connectivity network.

For years, Nepal depended on Indian telecom companies, for access to the worldwide web, which Nepali officials said made connections vulnerable to network failures.

Nepal Telecom and China Telecom Global launched their services after they wrapped up the laying of optical fiber cables between Kerung in China and Rasuwagadi in Nepal, about 50 km (30 miles) north of Kathmandu, the companies said.
