Bandwidth ban on aamra technologies revoked
The telecom regulator today withdrew the directive under which 50 per cent bandwidth of aamra technologies was blocked because of non-payment of outstanding revenue of over Tk 33 crore.
The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) withdraw the directive as the international internet gateway (IIG) operator has recently cleared the dues.
The BTRC in a letter said the directive to block aamra technologies' 50 per cent bandwidth and to refrain from providing upstream connections and upgradation of existing connections has been revoked.
This withdrawal order will be effective from today, a top official of the BTRC told The Daily Star.
However, he said aamra is yet to clear all the dues.
Earlier on July 18, the commission issued a letter directing the International Terrestrial Cable to cap bandwidth supply to aamra technologies to 50 per cent.
Aamra technologies supplies bandwidth to different clients, including Grameenphone, Robi Axiata and Banglalink.
