Internet services in the country would be disrupted temporarily for 7 days due to the maintenance work of the submarine cable, BSS reports.
“The SEA-ME-WE-4 Consortium would carry out maintenance work of the undersea cable at its Singapore end from 12:00am of October 21 to 2:00pm of October 27 that may disrupt internet service temporarily in the country,” Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited (BTCL) Director (Public Relations and Publication) Meer Mohammad Morshed said today.
“But, the internet service would be kept on through alternative arrangement during the period,” he added. He, however, hoped internet users in the country would not face any major problem except slow speed.
Bangladesh now connected with lone submarine cable SEA-ME-WE-4. But, it has already joined another consortium SEA-ME-WE-5 that is expected to be connected with the country in December.
Besides, the country is connected with International Terrestrial Cable (ITC) through different Indian companies.
