Mobile operators apply for 4G licences


Mobile operators apply for 4G licences

All the telecom operators applied within the deadline that expired in the noon, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) Secretary MD Sarowar Alam told The Daily Star.

Citycell which stopped providing service in October last year are preparing to re-enter the telecommunication business with this application.

All telecom operators that have 3G will qualify for 4G licences. However, since Citycell does not have 3G, they will have to purchase spectrum that will be available on February 13.

Though the BTRC has put a provision in the 4G guideline to facilitate participation of new entities to deliver the fastest data service, there was no new application.
