BTRC to issue four tower concessions

29 Mar 2018

The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) is planning to issue a request for proposal (RFP) for the award of four concessions for the management of telecoms towers, The Daily Star writes. BTRC Commissioner Md Jahurul Haque said that the authority could award the licences within the next two months via a beauty contest. The licence fee is set at BDT250 million (USD3 million), with an annual fee of BDT5 million, in addition to a requirement to share 5.5% of revenue with the government and contribute 1% to the social obligation fund. So far, only two companies have expressed interest in the authorisations – US-based American Tower Corporation and Malaysian-backed edotco Bangladesh.
