    We have studied the generation of low-noise ultrashort multibound solitons in the telecommunication spectral window in an erbium-doped all-fiber ring laser with a highly-nonlinear resonator mode-locked by a nonlinear polarization evolution effect. The multibound soliton generation is obtained with more than 20 bound dechirped pulses with a duration of 240 fs at a repetition rate of 11.3 MHz (with a signal-To-noise ratio of 73.3 dB), the relative intensity noise is <-140 dBc/Hz, and the Allan deviation of the repetition frequency does not exceed $\sim 1.3\cdot 10^{\mathbf {-8}}$ with a time averaging window of 100 s.
