7 Sep 2012

The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has extended the deadline for applications for new licences allowing termination of international incoming voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) calls, to 4 October 2012. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, the BTRC published its VoIP Service Provider Policy on 22 July 2012 and invited applications from companies wishing to secure new VoIP termination concessions, valid for five years; the watchdog is prohibiting existing domestic mobile operators and international gateway operators from applying.
