Teletalk and Banglalink Trial Operation of Using the Same Network has Started

Telecom companies, TeleTalk and Banglalink, have announced the initiation of the country’s first National Roaming Field Trial. Under this initiative, both operators will conduct a test program in specific areas of the country, allowing each other’s network to be used without hindrance.

In the initial phase, the trial will involve testing post-paid voice and Short Message Service (SMS) services in selected areas of the country. Later, a test will be conducted for prepaid services and data (internet).

On Wednesday, the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications, Mustafa Jabbar, officially launched the National Roaming Field Trial in a meeting at the Ministry’s conference room. Banglalink conveyed this information through a press release.

Minister Mustafa Jabbar stated that this initiative would promote network sharing between both operators, ensuring service continuity. The move aims to benefit customers by allowing voice, SMS, and internet services across the country’s extensive network coverage. Similar services are already available in 22 countries, including India, Pakistan, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.

The trial program is being conducted with the cooperation of the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC). The Chairman of BTRC, Shyam Sunder Sikder, expressed his hope that this initiative would soon be commercially implemented.

Banglalink’s CEO, Erik Aas, and TeleTalk’s Managing Director, A. K. M. Habibur Rahman, also spoke at the event.
