State-owned telecom operator Teletalk is launching high-speed internet service ‘5G’ in the country. Initially, the trial of 5G will start in six locations.
200 places will be set to launch 5G in the capital by 2022. Later, it will be extended to other places including Dhaka city.
Md. Sahab Uddin, Managing Director (MD) of Teletalk, said a project has been undertaken to expand Teletalk’s network in rural areas.
Teletalk signed an agreement with Huawei in October this year to provide 5G technology services. Under the agreement, Huawei is providing world-class services to Teletalk to launch 5G technology in Bangladesh.
A joint test of Huawei and Teletalk at different sites in Dhaka city has already shown great results – 1.5 Gbps peak internet speed and 710 milliseconds of latency – for the users. This will accelerate the digitization of industries in the country and create many more opportunities for individual users.
Earlier, at a function on September 25 this year, Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar said the fifth-generation Internet service (5G) would be launched in Dhaka based on trial on any day in December - that could be on December 12, on the Digital Bangladesh Day, Or December 16, on the Victory Day of Bangladesh.
