BTCL core cable cut off in Dhaka, nationwide landline services disrupted
The landline service of Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Ltd (BTCL) have been disrupted across the country as its core cable was cut off in the Bangla Motor area, Dhaka on Thursday night. BTCL Managing Director Mahfujuddin Ahmed said the landline services would not be restored before 6pm on Friday. The disruption in services will cost the government Tk5 crore in revenue, he added. Around 800,000 subscribers use landline services of the state-owned telecommunication company across the country. BTCL Director Mir Mohammad Morshed (Public Relations) said Dhaka City Corporation workers accidentally took out one of the company's core cables in Bangla Motor while constructing a drainage system in New Easkaton area on Thursday night. Landlines across the country, including the emergency helpline numbers of Bangladesh Fire Service and Civil Defence, went out of order following the accident, he added. "We learned about it on Friday morning and immediately started the repair work; hopefully, the problem will be resolved within a few hours," he said.
