The mobile internet speed was restored this evening 27 hours after it was slowed down by the telecom regulator.

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) through an e-mail asked four mobile operators to restore the entire mobile data network services around 6:00pm without mentioning details, said officials of the operators.

The BTRC yesterday afternoon directed the mobile operators to slow down the internet by shutting down 3G and 4G services and later at 10:00pm they directed them to shut down the entire mobile data network ahead of the 11th national election.

Earlier on Thursday, the telecom regulator also blocked 3G and 4G services for 10 hours, people using the internet on their phones were not be able to stream or upload pictures or videos.
