A new firm—e.co—was launched in Dhaka on Friday to provide end-to-end services in the field of telecom infrastructure, transmission and network.
Officials of the Bangladesh part of e.co Group, a concern of Axiata Group, also unveiled the logo of the company at the programme at Radisson Blu Water Garden Hotel.
“The communication sector in Bangladesh has the potential to achieve substantial growth in the days to come, and e.co plans to be one of the key catalysts in materialising that promise,” said James Maclaurin, group chief executive of e.co.
“We expect our journey with millions in Bangladesh to be a remarkable one."
“We feel proud to be a part of Bangladesh at the time when the country is going to celebrate its 42 anniversary of independence,” said Andrew Rolt managing director of e.co Bangladesh Ltd.
“e.co promises to be a lot more than just a network infrastructure operator in Bangladesh. Our footstep in this country signifies our desire to grow and unite the nation under the banner of communication services of true class.”
The core competence of the company lies in developing best-in-class site and sustainable energy solutions, providing superior customer services through dedicated commercial and operations teams, the company said in a statement yesterday.
The firm purchased the passive network infrastructure assets of Robi, the third largest telecom operator in Bangladesh, and it will deploy its assets for a shared platform by all telecom operators, according to the statement.
Sunil Kanti Bose, chairman of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission, and NI Khan, ICT secretary, were also present.
