3G and 4G mobile services were shut down again on Sunday night for the sake of state security and to prevent rumors, only hours after restoration.

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) sources said that the mobile operators were asked to suspend the services around 9:00 pm until further notice.

The mobile operators shut down the services around half an hour later.

Earlier, the 3G and 4G mobile services were restored at 6:00 pm on Sunday as the voting of the national parliamentary elections ended at 4:00 pm.

3G and 4G services had been unavailable from 3:00 pm Saturday, the day before the election. 2G service was suspended later that night.
