The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has decided to reduce the bandwidth capacity of Grameenphone and Robi as they failed to pay their dues to the government.
Sources informed, the regulatory body has directed country’s five IIGs (International Internet Gateway) to keep Grameenphone bandwidth capacity at 144 Gbps (Gigabits per second) and 125 Gbps (Gigabits per second) for Robi on Thursday. If these instructions are effective, then Internet users of both operators will face a big problem.
Confirming this matter, Zakir Hossain Khan, Senior Assistant Director (PR) of BTRC, said that, 30 percent bandwidth capacity of GP and 15 percent of Robi will be reduced as they could not clear their dues despite repeated notices.
Zakir said GP, the country’s largest mobile phone operator, has Tk 12,579.95 crore due to the government, including Tk 4,085.95 crore to the National Board of Revenue (NBR).
has due of Tk 867.23 crore to the government, including Tk 197.21 crore to the NBR alone, Zakir added.
He said the BTRC would send a letter to International Internet Gateway (IIGW) to implement its decision.
