23 May 2017

Following the integration of the Airtel Bangladesh and Robi mobile networks in seven Bangladesh regions, Robi Axiata has begun integrating the respective infrastructure in the capital Dhaka, the company reported in a press release. Since Airtel Bangladesh merged into Robi Axiata in November 2016, the enlarged company has integrated the dual networks in Chittagong, Khulna, Sylhet, Rangpur, Mymensingh, Comilla and Barisal divisions, with the project now reaching Dhaka districts including Manikganj, Savar, Gazipur, Narsingdi, Madaripur, Shariatpur, Gopalganj and Faridpur. The process involves combining spectrum, base stations and all other telecom network resources. Robi Axiata also reports that Airtel users are now enjoying 99% network population coverage, an improvement on pre-merger coverage.
