Banglalink, one of the leading telecom operators in Bangladesh, has hit a new landmark of 4 crore subscribers.
The company crossed the prestigious figure acquiring 3.3 lakh new subscribers in January 2023. With the newly acquired customers, Banglalink’s subscriber base stood at around 4.14 crore at the end of the month, read a press release on Thursday.
This milestone was celebrated at the Secretariat in Dhaka in the presence of Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar, division Secretary Abu Hena Morshed Zaman, Banglalink CEO Erik Aas, and its Chief Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Officer Taimur Rahman.
The achievement came as a result of Banglalink’s drive for nationwide network expansion and consistent technological advancement.
Banglalink expanded its network coverage by around 40 per cent last year, increasing its total sites to more than 14,500, which contributed to its emergence as a truly national operator.
The operator has been recognised as the fastest 4G network in the country by Ookla for three consecutive years.
On the occasion, Mustafa Jabbar said, “Our telecom industry is a key driving force behind Bangladesh’s technological progress. As one of the leading telecom operators, Banglalink has played a pivotal role in this advancement.
“I believe that Banglalink will achieve more success in the days to come along with contributing relentlessly to the building of a Smart Bangladesh.”
Banglalink CEO Erik Aas said, “Banglalink’s acquisition of 4 crore subscribers marks the beginning of another glorious chapter in our growth journey.”
