Slow internet from September 21-23
Bangladesh will be connected to the long-awaited second submarine cable from tomorrow.
Due to maintenance work on the first submarine cable in Bangladesh, internet services may be sluggish during September 21-23.
Authorities have said they will try to use the newly connected submarine cable to maintain internet services during the period.
Although Bangladesh will be connected to its second submarine cable next week, the maintenance work on the first may cause problems for users.
Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL) Managing Director Md Monwar Hossain said: “Fixing the submarine cable repeaters is a regular process. It has not been done for quite some time. Over the three days, we will repair the repeater of the 1,260km long SEA-ME-WE 4 cable.”

Bangladesh gets 300Gbps bandwidth from the SEA-ME-WE 4 cable. But BSCCL only provides 250Gbps from it. The national usage is currently 440Gbps. Six international extraterrestrial cable associations are importing another 150Gbps of bandwidth.
