Robi launches 3.5G

October 31, 2013

Mobile operator Robi Axiata yesterday announced the launch of its 3.5G services for its customers at select areas in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet.
Robi customers can now enjoy much faster online services like viewing multimedia content, playing games and downloading files with the 3.5G technology, the operator said in a statement.
Last month, Robi launched its third generation (3G) network in parts of Dhaka and Chittagong, which it brands as ’3.5G’, though technically it is the same technology offloaded by the other telecom operators in the country.
As an introductory special promotional bonus pack, existing Robi subscribers of 2G monthly packs of 1GB, 3GB and 5GB will get 1GB of 3G data bonus for free, according to the statement.
The 1GB, 2GB and 5GB packs all have 30-day validity for 2G data, but the free 1GB of 3G data will be valid for 90 days.
The 1GB monthly pack will cost Tk 275, the 3GB pack Tk 450, and 5GB Tk 650.
The ‘Pay as You Go’ tariff will also be applied at a flat rate of Tk 0.015/KB, the operator said.
Robi customers can also avail an extra bonus offer for free online Robi-to-Robi video calls throughout the month of November on their 3G-enabled cell phones.
Through the offer Robi customers on a 3G network can place a video call to any of their contacts who are also on a 3G network.
