BSS, Dhaka :
Post, Telecommunications and ICT Minister Mostafa Jabbar said the government is pledge-bound to reach internet services to each and every household of the country.  "All the unions of the country will come under optical fiber network connections within this year except some 772 unions situated in the remote areas," he said this on Thursday while addressing a function titled 'Internet Operation Technology' organised by South Asian Network Operation Group and ISPAB held at a city hotel.
Jabbar also said that initiatives have been taken to provide internet services speedily in the remote areas through microwave and Bangabandhu Satellite 1.
He said Bangladesh has already gained the status of 57th satellite launching country and the country has also moved one step ahead with the launching of the 4G services.
"We're one of the few countries in the world which has successfully tested 5G. We couldn't take part in the previous three industrial revolutions, so we can't miss the fourth industrial revolution. Bangladesh is now a role model in such digital revolution," he added.
South Asian Network Operation Group Chairman Kazi Kabir and its founding Chairman Gaurab Raj Upadhaya, President of Internet Service Providers Association Bangladesh (ISPAB) MA Hakim and President of bdNOG FM Rashed Amin Biddut spoke, among others, at the function.
