Banglalink, one of the leading digital communications service providers in the country, hit the new landmark of 4 crore subscribers.
It crossed the prestigious figure acquiring 3.3 Lakh new subscribers in January 2023.
With the newly acquired customers, Banglalink’s subscriber base stood at around 4.14 crore at the end of the month.
This milestone was celebrated at the Secretariat in Dhaka yesterday in the presence of Posts and Telecommunications Mustafa Jabbar, posts and telecommunications division Abu Hena Morshed Zaman, Banglalink CEO Erik Aas, and Chief Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Officer of Banglalink Taimur Rahman.
The achievement came as a result of Banglalink’s drive for nationwide network expansion and consistent technological advancement. Banglalink expanded its network coverage by around 40 percent last year, increasing its total sites to more than 14,500, which contributed to its emergence as a truly national operator. It has been recognized as the fastest 4G network in the country by Ooklafor three consecutive years as well.
Mustafa Jabbar, Posts and Telecommunications Division, said, “Our telecom industry is a key driving force behind Bangladesh’s technological progress. As one of the leading telecom operators, Banglalink has played a pivotal role in this advancement. I believe that Banglalink will achieve more success in the days to come along with contributing relentlessly to the building of a Smart Bangladesh.”
Erik Aas, Chief Executive Officer, Banglalink, said, “Banglalink’s acquisition of 4 crore subscribers marks the beginning of another glorious chapter in our growth journey. We convey our heartfelt gratitude to our subscribers, policymakers, partners and all stakeholders for their support in achieving the milestone.”
