Bangladeshi mobile operators have been using 2G technology in Bangladesh. 2G technology have some limitations. It can’t offer fast data communication and internet service. Many countries have taken 3G and some countries have already started to introduce 4G, which is faster than 3G.
The state owned mobile operator Teletalk has started its 3G service formally yesterday. Teletalk has upgraded more than two hundred base transceivers (BTS). In the first phase only the users of Dhaka will get 3G service.
Users will need 3G enabled smartphone or 3G enabled mobile modem to use 3G data service. They will also need 3G connection in their numbers.
Other mobile operators will also have the opportunity to get 3G license on next January. At least five companies will get 3G license in that auction. Teletalk have pay linecse fee in line with the auction rate. This 3G license will also allow operators to offer 4G service if they want.
