Bangladesh, along with India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will witness a massive growth & penetration in Broadband & IP based services from 2012 onward due to rapid economic growth, expansion of educated population & improved living standard. This was stated by Zahir Ahmed, CEO of Mir Telecom Ltd while giving his speech on IP infrastructure and connectivity in the context of Indian Sub-Continent in Capacity Asia 2010 on 3rd of November at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during a panel discussion over “Identifying new growth opportunities in the Indian subcontinent”.
Identifying new growth opportunities in the Indian subcontinent
Ever-changing user needs for newer services, technological evolution & structural changes in telecom markets are fueling for an all-IP network in the Indian Subcontinent. Bangladesh is still lagging behind in respect to Broadband penetration with only 0.4% in comparison to India (6.9%) and Pakistan (10.4%) but looking at a different angle, this sector still has a lot of potential as well due to the expansion of Wimax operation in all the major markets in the region. The two-day conference ended on 3rd November 2010.
