Illegal VoIP providers in Bangladesh are on the rise

April 13th, 2009

Illegal VoIP providers in Bangladesh are on the rise, grabbing more than half of the overseas calls trade in Bangladesh, due to lack of government control, said industry leaders on Sunday.

Telecom infrastructure providers say development of the Tk 3,500-crore international calls sector will remain a far cry until the government takes effective measures, especially against unregulated VSAT use.

“The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has been asked to reinforce its measures against illegal VoIP in Bangladesh” said Mir Nasir Hossain, president of TIOB (Telecommunication Infrastructure Operators of Bangladesh).

He said the BTRC’s newly appointed chairman Zia Ahmed had assured them, however, of soon resuming the drive against the illegal operators.

Nasir said measures must also be put in place for limiting the use of VSAT
