‘Success follows those who dare, especially those who dare with guts and sincerity’
WorldLink is the largest Internet and Network Service Provider in Nepal and one of the most prominent IT companies. Founded in September 1995 with the aim of providing Internet and IT services by its present Chairman and Managing Director, Dileep Agrawal. WorldLink started off by providing store-and-forward e-mail services over a dial-up link to the Internet in the US. In March 1997, WorldLink started providing full Internet access over a dedicated leased-line to the Internet backbone in the US through Teleglobe International. From September 1999 till June 2008, WorldLink has been connecting to the Internet over a direct satellite uplink through its own VSAT terminal, thereby completely bypassing Nepal Telecommunications Corporation, the local PTT.
At present WorldLink owns its own leased fiber backbone and buys IP bandwidth from various IP transit locations of the world at Mumbai, Chennai, Singapore and London interconnecting with various service providers like TATA, Airtel, Singtel and Cogent. It also interconnects with various Internet Exchange like NPIX in Nepal, Equinix in Singapore and LINX in London. Beside purchasing IP transit WorldLink also partners with various Content Delivery Network (CDN) like Google, Facebook and Akamai and host their servers serve the content locally.
WorldLink operates state-of-the-art network built upon the network equipment manufacturer like Nokia for DWDM, Juniper and Cisco for IP/MPLS Core and Aggregation, Extreme Network in Switching, Nokia and Huawei for the Access side. It operates the one of the finest and the largest fiber backbone and access network across the country serving 63 districts providing services like high speed Internet up to 100Mbps along with HD IPTV services.
Over the past 20 years, WorldLink has grown from a small business to a strong and stable corporation with professional staff and a strong customer base. The company has also positioned itself as a complete IT service provider rather than just an ISP, by providing services such as data connectivity, network integration and consulting, web hosting and development, hardware sales and maintenance, and software development and systems integration through its partnership with WorldLink Technologies Pvt Ltd. Our success as an excellent service provider is exemplified by the satisfaction of our customers, which include such reputed names as the United Nations, American Embassy and the Government of Nepal.
WorldLink is a success story, the likes of which are usually found in the Silicon Valley. It has thus served as a role model for other startup IT companies. It has demonstrated to young entrepreneurs that IT is the wave of the future, even in a relatively small market like Nepal. It has undoubtedly contributed to the ongoing IT revolution visible in this small Himalayan country. In recognition of its contribution, Nepal Government has invited WorldLink to be a part of IT taskforces such as the National IT Infrastructure Development Committee and contribute to the development of IT in the country.
