More subscribers log on to BTCL broadband

May 24, 2010

The broadband internet subscription of Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Ltd (BTCL) soared 83 percent in April from a month ago because of reduced charges.
Subscribers used the asymmetric digital subscriber line or ADSL, a data communications technology that enables faster transmission.
The state-owned land phone operator that provides broadband internet connectivity to its subscribers bagged 537 new connections in April, up from 293 in March.
In April, BTCL cut registration costs by 80 percent to Tk 100, and setup and configuration charges by 50 percent to Tk 300.
The company reduced usage charges by up to 38 percent on different packages.
In addition, the company reduced the modem prices to Tk 2,500 from Tk 3,500, making the packages cheaper and more competitive than other private mobile phone and Wimax operators.
“We have seen a surge in new connections soon after the new rates were implemented in April,” said a BTCL official.
