BSNL to set up connectivity through B’desh

Agartala: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has planned to set up telecom connectivity through Bangladesh for North Eastern region of the country due to tough terrain and geographical isolation, top BSNL Executive said on Sunday.

“Ministry has attached much importance in consolidating telecom network in NE region and we are interested in setting up an alternative route through Bangladesh due to tough terrain,” Chairman and Managing Director of BSNL RK Upadhayaya told reporters here.

Connectivity would be set up between Agartala and Dhaka via Akhaura in Bangladesh and between Sabroom in south Tripura and Cox’s Bazar in Chittagong in Bangladesh to provide smooth telecom connectivity, he told reporters.

He hoped that BSNL would retain its business and buy more equipments to provide better service in the country and compete with other telecom companies. (PTI)
