During the drive tests, it was found that minimum download speed of at least 7mbps could not be ensured by Grameenphone, Robi, and Banglalink

Bangladesh's mobile phone operators are yet to ensure 4G services in areas outside Dhaka, according to a report of the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC).

The BTRC on Wednesday published the report of its comprehensive quality of service (GoS) measurement through drive tests conducted in four divisions to find out internet speed, including 4G, service coverage, call setup success rate, and call drop rate, reports UNB.

During the drive tests, it was found that the minimum download speed of at least 7mbps could not be ensured by the top three mobile operators – Grameenphone, Robi, and Banglalink – outside Dhaka, the report said.

However, the state-run mobile operator Teletalk remained out of the purview of the drive tests as it is yet to launch the 4G service outside Dhaka.

The drive tests were conducted between January and February this year in Khulna, Rajshahi, Barisal, and Rangpur.
