Maintenance work may disrupt internet service

Disruption of Internet services and international telecommunication is expected from May 29 due to scheduled maintenance work of submarine cables, according to sources at BSCCL (Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited).

However, BSCCL is preparing for any problems that may arise under the circumstances, but is confident there won’t be any disruptions to eastbound voice and data communications from Bangladesh to Singapore, Malaysia and all other eastern countries.

The scheduled repair work by the South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 4 or SEA-ME-WE 4 international cable consortium in the deep sea will take place from May 29 to June 21.

During this period, BSCCL will try to ensure uninterrupted services for all eastbound voice and data communication by re-routing them to west bound circuits. “We have already arranged an alternative through Chennai, India that will let us communicate up to Mersey, France,” said Md Monwar Hossain, managing director of BSCCL.

He said they have informed all the International Internet Gateways (IIG) regarding the situation and suggested alternatives for them. Four out of the six International Terrestrial Cable (ITC) will provide Internet links through India.

Sumon Ahmed Sabir, chief strategic officer of [email protected], a transmission and ITC company, said: “We have already received many requests to provide two to three weeks of internet service.” Including an order for 1GBPS. “Since we have arranged all possible alternatives, we expect to have very few problems,” he said.

During the three-week maintenance period voice and data communication with Singapore and Malaysia will be maintained through Chennai, which may result in disruptive data transfers.
