The previous monthly price for 1Mbps bandwidth was Tk 4,800.
The new price will be applicable to all BTCL internet subscribers, the wholesale purchasers and home users, said Mir Mohammad Morshed, director of BTCL public relations.
The company has around 60,000 home subscribers and a number of bulk purchasers across the country, he said.
BTCL has also slashed prices of all other retail internet bandwidth significantly and included 15 percent value-added tax, effective from April 1, BTCL said in a statement.
The unlimited internet users will have packages at lower prices while different volume-based data users will enjoy double data usage, according to the statement.
