Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh on Sunday said that the cable operators will start work to lay overhead cables underground from tomorrow (on Monday).  

The compromise was reached in a meeting between DSCC Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh, Internet Service Providers Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB) and Cable Operators Association of Bangladesh (COAB) on Sunday.  

After the meeting, Taposh told reporters, "No overhead cables on the streets of Dhaka South will be cut down from today. It was decided at our meeting that they [internet and cable TV providers] would move the wires underground at their own expense and immediately remove the hanging wires."
