Robi is ready to provide 4G services in the capital after successfully completing trial run of the services.
Mobile phone operator Robi Axiata Limited is ready to provide 4G (LTE-Long Term Evolution) services in the capital after successfully completing trial run of the services.
Robi and Ericsson together conducted a trial of 4G in the capital city, which demonstrated the operator is ready to introduce 4G services in the country, said a press release.
Also, the successful trial is a milestone for Ericsson Bangladesh and a sign of the growing readiness of the Bangladesh telecom sector to adopt LTE technology.
The LTE technology trial has proven that any common user can now enjoy high-speed mobile broadband of 90 Mbps and above.
The trial was performed using the latest commercial end-user devices and combined carrier of 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz bands.
Ericsson and Robi are to run similar trials in other cities of the country.
“Although there are some barriers to adoption of 4G/LTE technology in Bangladesh, we recognise and appreciate the growing demand for high speed internet,” said Mahtab Uddin Ahmed, managing director and CEO of the company.
