Google Inc installed the Google cache server in Nepal at NTC office Jawalakhel Internet Exchange Point, operated by Nepal Telecom(NTC).
A Google cache server is a dedicated network server that saves Web pages or other Internet content locally. By placing previously requested information in temporary storage, or cache, a cache server both speeds up access to data and reduces demand on an enterprise’s bandwidth.
With the installation of google cache server the services provided by Google will be faster than before. Google services such as Gmail, Youtube etc will now be accessed faster from Nepal. This will also help NTC by reducing its bandwidth access and reduce its cost.
“After the installation of Google server, Internet bandwidth uses of NTC has been decreased” Said NTC representatives.
