Internet speed in Bangladesh may slow down for five days as maintenance work is being conducted on the submarine cable near Singapore, says state-run Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Ltd (BTCL).
The internet speed in Bangladesh may slow from 12:00am Sunday Oct 23 to 2pm Thursday Oct 27, BTCL Director (Public Relations and Publications) Mir Md Morshed told bdnews24.com.
BLTC has made several steps to ensure users will have Internet access during that period, said Morshed.
“We hope our users will not have too much trouble, but Internet speed may be slightly slower,” he said.
A ‘repeater’ will be replaced during maintenance work scheduled on Sunday, said a senior official at Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL).
“There may be Internet traffic outage for about three hours after midnight on Sunday,” he said “And there may also be a three-hour outage on the final day of maintenance work.”
