Mr. Manzurul also added that "BTRC will gladly help the investors who come up with such a proposal. He expressed his frustration over the state-owned Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board’s delay in acquiring a second submarine cable.

At a time when the SEA-ME-WE4 submarine cable, owned by BTTB as a consortium member, was cut at Alexandria in Egypt on Wednesday, BTRC chief made this comment. This incident cause suspending the BTTB’s internet connectivity with Europe and the USA.

The BTRC chief said the post and telecommunications ministry should take quick steps for installing a submarine cable line for ‘full redundancy of its existing cable’. He also suggested lower bandwidth prices for spreading the benefit of information and communications technology to the rural areas.

Earlier, the BTTB sent a proposal of 10 companies, mostly Indian, to the telecom ministry for setting up a back-up of its existing submarine cable as as well as to meet the growing demand for internet and overseas telecom services, which is likely to increase by three times by 2011.

The BTTB’s proposal said the demand for telecom and internet services would shoot up rapidly in the next three years after the implementation of the government’s recently adopted International Long Distance Telecommunication Services Policy 2007.
