Internet may slow down today






Internet users will suffer slow connection today. It will happen due to maintenance work on a submarine cable between 2:30 pm and 10:00 pm. One of its two submarine cables will remain completely dysfunctional during the time. State-owned Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL) recently issued a statement explaining the circumstance.

Bangladesh was connected to the submarine cable which will be operated on today in 2005. The government later allowed several private entities to import bandwidth from India using underground cables. BSCCL Managing Director said users will not suffer much because internet traffic remains low on Fridays.

He added that no significant problem will arise during voice calls and other internet services as additional bandwidth will be available as the second submarine cable will be working as a lifeline at this time. The users do not buy cable-specific internet bandwidth and BSCCL should divert one cable’s traffic to another without issuing a statement.

Abu Saeed Khan termed BSCCL’s business model primitive. He added that the company enjoys a monopoly and makes immense profit by abusing its power. He urged the telecom regulator to intervene and encourage competition. Industry insiders said Bangladesh could run out of internet bandwidth in one and a half years. Bangladesh is going to be connected to a third submarine cable in 2024, the official said.
