Classic Tech is a leading Internet Service Provider in Nepal. Since its launch in 2009, it has steadily risen earning trust and support on the back of its varied range of packages and offers. Despite stiff competition from existing ISPs, Classic Tech has earned a massive customer base in the last 12 years, becoming one of the go-to ISPs with its coverage across 74 districts across Nepal.
As the Nepali internet market rocks through the internet speed war, Classic Tech has propelled itself to the top when it comes to the number game at least. The company recently announced a 1000 Mbps internet plan, which is Nepal’s fastest ever and leaves its competitors far behind in the race.
Besides, the company has also announced that it will bring WiFi 6 and Tri-Band routers soon to complement its newer and higher ambition as it seeks to reach more households in the coming years.
Classic Tech provides its services under Home Broadband and Enterprise Solutions. But the latter offers minimal bandwidth packages compared to the Home Broadband’s ultra high-speed packages. This is why Enterprise Solutions will soon turn obsolete in the wake of the current speed war if not significantly upgraded. This is why, we will list its Home Broadband’s diverse range of internet packages and their costs in detail. Keep reading.

Classic Tech: Fair Usage Policy
Classic-Tech implements a Fair Usage Policy to keep its bandwidth fair for all. If it finds any “unlimited” plan subscriber abusing the bandwidth, it toggles a FUP on that user and the speed throttles.
As Enterprise plans are dedicated, only the “Unlimited” plans are subject to the FUP. The policy resets every month. But if a customer doesn’t comply, the ISP may contact them with caution.
These are the conditions where FUP can strike:
- While downloading or uploading large files at the hostel, cyber, or some official work as their internet demands are generally higher than residential uses.
- If a Home Broadband subscriber has unusually “heavy download” characteristics.
- Can’t rule out the possibility of a virus or malware triggering the device to send and receive heavy data files without the user knowing.
Classic Tech implements its FUP in three tiers, just like other major ISPs in Nepal. It has a three-tier status: YELLOW Zone, RED Zone, and BLACK Zone
Classic Tech’s Three-Tier Zone FUP
Classic Tech has modified its FUP parameters with generosity. Now, the ISP has introduced a percentage system in which the subscribed package’s speed comes down to the stipulated percentage speed. As the Home Broadband speed are all in 3 figures to 1 Gbps, users will still have a good speed for their internet consumption. But it doesn’t mean a user is encouraged to abuse the bandwidth.
- YELLOW Zone – If a user or a client exceeds the Fair Usage Quota, the speed throttles down to 50%.
- RED Zone – The client’s bandwidth speed comes down to 25% if they continue abusing the internet consumption even after triggering the YELLOW Zone
- BLACK Zone – The bandwidth throttles to its lowest 10% or 5 Mbps for their continued bandwidth abuse.
When either of these Zone triggers, Classic Tech notifies the user via SMS/Email/Notification in mobile apps.
If a FUP Zone is active, it resets at the beginning of the next month’s billing cycle and the speed restores to normal.
If a customer has crossed the FUP Quota threshold, their data usage counter will reset at the first of every monthly billing cycle and their Internet will return back to its original speed.
Classic Tech tags a user to its corresponding ‘zone’ when a user exceeds the monthly data threshold. This will trigger the speed throttle and reduce its bandwidth performance till the end of the running month.
- YELLOW Zone: When this zone comes into effect, the users’ bandwidth speed will come down to 12Mbps. Classic Tech will inform them via SMS/Email/Notification in the mobile app so that they could lessen their internet abuse.
- RED Zone: If the user exceeds bandwidth consumption further, the RED Zone strikes and the bandwidth spirals down to 6Mbps. They get notifications through SMS/Email/Notification.
- BLACK Zone: If the user ignores the warning and keeps on abusing the bandwidth, the bandwidth’s speed will be throttled to 3Mbps.
Classic Tech resets its FUP every monthly billing cycle and it restores back to normal. It is always best that we do not abuse your bandwidth consumption so as to help every gain a better internet service on the network.
So there it was. We compiled the list of all Classic Tech’s available internet packages from Basic, SoHo, To Corporate. Depending on the size of your family, the purpose of use, bandwidth demands, and affordability choose your package wisely and stay away from FUP’s strike.
ISP Market Going Through A Phase
Internet service is now evolving in Nepal. The large ISPs have had a great run for years but new key companies are coming with unprecedented offers to draw attention away from traditional giants. Chaudhary Group recently debuted with CG Net’s 120Mbps residential package. In this, every existing ISPs are under immense pressure to mount an apt response to hook their customer base.
