Commenting on Banglalink’s progress Erik Aas said: “Banglalink has already established its identity as a forerunner in the digital market, and has a lot to offer in the future. We are currently focusing on expanding our strong 4G network across the country so that all of our customers from every region can benefit from it. With the highest amount of spectrum per customer, we will fulfil this objective soon and will reinforce our position further in the market.”
