Mobile phone operators will not be allowed to offer internet packages with less than seven-day validity from January 27, said the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) on Wednesday.
The telecom regulator will send letters to mobile phone operators soon in this regard, BTRC’s acting Chairman Jahurul Haque told a views-exchange meeting with ‘Telecom Reporters Network Bangladesh’ members at its office.
“Ensuring quality mobile network and data service is our big challenge this year,” he said.
BTRC received 2,947 complaints about mobile phone services last year and disposed of 2,838 of them, the acting BTRC boss said.
BTRC Commissioner Rezaul Kader said mobile phone operators would be ranked based on their service qualities. “Customers can choose operators after checking the ranking,” he said.
“We want to start 5G services in 2020. We’re working on it,” said BTRC Commissioner (Spectrum) Aminul Haque.
