Dhaka, Apr 28 (UNB)- The fishermen and commuters around the Bay of Bengal will be able to communicate with a wider range of mobile network as Grameenphone has recently improved its deep-sea network capacity.
Grameenphone is providing this deep-sea network coverage from the point of Cox’s Bazar, Kuakata, Char Kukrimukri in Bhola and Char Montaz in Patuakhali and up to 38 km from the Bangladesh coastline.
Deputy CEO and CMO Yasir Azman said “The coastal region and the Bay of Bengal is an essential contributor to the national economy. People who depend on the sea for their livelihood also play important role in providing food in our homes. Their safety is very important and we believe that the network development will play a significant role for their security.”
The network development is aimed to help the bread earners and commuters of sea and keep them safe with prompt communication.
Currently, mariners use high frequency radios to communicate with each other and the mainland.
