The government is taking the initiative to bring Khagrachhari, Rangamati and Bandarban under a strong network. For this, an optical fiber network will be set up in three districts.
The 16th meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on Wednesday approved the proposal of the Information and Communication Technology Division.
Additional Secretary of the Cabinet Shamsul Arefin told reporters after the meeting.
Shamsul Arefin said work would be done to bring a permanent network in the three hill districts under the “establish Broadband Connectivity in areas deprived of telecommunication facilities (Connected Bangladesh)” project. Initiatives have been taken to set up permanent networks in 59 unions.
Considering the security risks and environmental constraints as the unions in the hilly areas are very remote, the proposal of a direct purchase method through the Bangladesh Army has been approved in principle, he further said.
