Robi, Banglalink to consider sharing of network resources

Published : 17 May 2024 08:56 PM

Robi and Banglalink, two leading mobile network operators in Bangladesh, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to evaluate possible sharing and rationalization of their network resources. 

This collaboration is set to expand 4G access nationwide, enhancing both the quality and speed of mobile broadband for customers.

Sharing network resources is a global best practice in the telecom industry. It promotes an asset-light business model and supports both companies' commitment to environmental sustainability through optimized use of energy resources. 

Additionally, it ensures better cost efficiency and usage of telco resources, enabling investments in service quality and value-added services (VAS). Furthermore, sharing network resources among telcos helps save foreign currency.

The announcement was made on Friday by the Minister of State for Posts, Telecommunications, and Information Technology, Zunaid Ahmed Palak, during the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day celebration at the Osmani Memorial Auditorium in Dhaka.
