Mobile phone operator Banglalink has launched its test 3G service yesterday. Banglalink is a subsidiary company of vimpelcom limited, which is the sixth largest group of the world providing telecommunication services.
The 3G service was officially launched by demonstrating a video call by Banglalink 3G network. Top Banglalink officials were present on the occasion. They explained the benefits of 3G service there. They claimed that they have initiated a massive network upgrade work to provide 3G service smoothly.
Earlier this month Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) sold 3G license and frequency to four mobile phone operators, Banglalink, Grameen Phone, Robi and Airtel. State owned operator Teletalk will get the license without auction. They have been providing 3G service from last year.
Other two operators Grameen Phone and Robi already announced that they will start limited 3G service from next month.
3G technology uses frequency more efficiently and that enables high speed data transfer. This is why users can enjoy high speed internet and other services like video calling and mobile television.
