Banglalink remains top private operator in terms of spectrum per customer

The newly acquired 40 MHz spectrum from the 2300 MHz band increases Banglalink's spectrum holding by 100%

Banglalink remains the top private operator in the country in terms of spectrum per customer, following the acquisition of 40 MHz spectrum at the Spectrum Auction 2022. 

The auction was organized by Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) at a hotel in Dhaka on Thursday, reads a press release.

The newly acquired 40 MHz spectrum from the 2300 MHz band increases Banglalink's spectrum holding by 100%. Banglalink's total spectrum holding now stands at 80 MHz.

Along with bolstering Banglalink's network deployment efforts, it will be instrumental in providing faster internet and high-quality digital services. 

Banglalink has already been recognized by Ookla as the fastest mobile network in the country for the last two years.

Chief Executive Officer of Banglalink Erik Aas said: "We congratulate the BTRC on successfully conducting the spectrum auction. It is an important step for the industry, as the availability of more spectrum will result in better internet speed and quality digital services for citizens of Bangladesh. In keeping with our objective - 4G for all, not 5G for a few, we intend to utilize the new spectrum primarily for 4G in next 2-3 years."

Banglalink has recently announced its plan to set up 3,000 new towers this year. It will remain committed to maintaining high-quality data and digital services and ensuring nationwide 4G coverage.
