March 22nd, 2010

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has decided to activate the private land phone connections, which were switched off over allegation against the operators of having involvement with illegal call termination.

“BTRC officials will visit the offices of accused landline operators tomorrow (Tuesday) and only the subscribers having valid documents will get connections,” BTRC Chairman Zia Ahmed told The Daily Star.

“No illegal connection will be restored,” the BTRC chairman said.

The telecommunication regulator has suspended operations of RanksTel, Dhaka Phone, PeoplesTel and WorldTel on charge of being involved in illegal call termination through voice over internet protocol.

The companies have more than 5.5 lakh subscribers.

Zia Ahmed said the legal proceedings would continue against the companies.
