INDIA: IMImobile, the global technology partner in revenue generation for operators, media providers and enterprises today announces the launch of a wide range of data services for over 2.2 million subscribers of Spice Nepal (brand Ncell) in Nepal.
The launch provides subscribers ready access to a rich catalogue of content including wallpapers, ringtones, animations, themes and games as well as a host of information and utility services – all discoverable and delivered over multiple channels including SMS, Web and WAP.
The portals also act as a one-stop launch pad for users to access popular social networking and web mail services such as Facebook and Gmail. These services have been brought to market for the very first time for Nepal’s subscribers.
Spice Nepal is the first private mobile operator in Nepal and launched its services under the Mero Mobile brand in 2005. The company recently rebranded itself and currently provides its services under the new and vibrant Ncell brand. TeliaSonera, a leading European provider of telecommunication services in over 20 markets, owns a controlling stake in Spice Nepal.
