4 Mar 2019

The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has allowed Internet Protocol Telephony Service Providers (IPTSPs) to launch mobile phone application-based calling services, subject to seeking the commission’s permission to do so. Of the 33 licensed IPTSPs currently operating in the country, the BTRC has so far allowed six to offer mobile phone-based applications, namely: Inter Cloud, BDCom Online Limited, Amber IT Limited, MetroNet Bangladesh, Link3 Technology Limited and ICC Communication. Of these, Inter Cloud has already launched its app-based calling service, which it has dubbed ‘Brilliant Connect’.
