Bangladeshi mobile operators GrameenPhone, Robi Axiata and Banglalink have rolled out 4G services in the capital and other major cities, shortly after receiving 4G concessions from the government. The Daily Star writes that the trio are currently offering faster speeds under their existing 3G subscription plans. Robi Axiata rolled out its 4G service in all 64 district headquarters, with managing director Mahtab Uddin Ahmed saying: ‘Before noon, about 35,000 customers of Robi were using the 4G service.’ The operator currently has around 1,500 LTE towers across Bangladesh, and the number is expected to reach 2,500 by the end of the month. For its part, GrameenPhone launched its LTE network in Dampara, Khulshi and Nasirabad in Chittagong, while it expects to expand coverage to Baridhara and Gulshan (Dhaka) shortly. Banglalink, meanwhile, has rolled out 4G services in Chittagong and Khulna.
