Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)- Bangladesh’s internet users reached to 33.43 million at the end of April this year thanks to mobile technology driving internet penetration, officials said.
There are two types of internet users-mobile and broadband- in the country. Of them hovering around 95 percent people (31.33 million) use internet through mobile network and remained (1.71 million) used broadband internet, according to the state-run Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) statistics.
A mobile company official said operators normally submitted the data of active internet users who has the minimum connectivity with the internet by 90 days.
Six mobile phone companies and two Wimax operators are mainly rolling out across the country by offering different kinds of internet package, thinking the demand of the people.
“The penetration will go up rapidly after introduction of 3G (third generation) technology,” an expert said.
Currently, telecom operator Grameenphone is leading the sector with 10 million internet subscribers followed by Banglalink 9.7 million, Robi 4.4 million, Airtel 2.8 million, Citycell 0.3 million and Teletalk 0.255 million.
Besides, internet service providers (ISPs) and PSTN (public switched telephone network) operators have around 1.22 million users while two wimax operators-Banglalion and Qubee- have 0.49 million internet connectivity.
Bangladesh latest nation with at least 100 million active cell phone users – a milestone reached so far by only 20 countries in the world.
Even land lines were difficult to obtain – let alone mobile phones — and were considered a sign of wealth and prestige. Today people from all social strata use cell phones, from street vendors to business executives in luxury cars, and from villagers to urbanites.
The transformation is due in large part to Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, who started his GrameenPhone Sim Company in 1997, For the reach every strata of the society with cell phone service.
“Now, we have more than 100 million active SIM users. This is an historic event,” Sunil Kanti Bose, Director of the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC), told News Of South Asia.
Bangladesh has now joined South Asian neighbors India (860m) and Pakistan (120m) on the list of countries with 100m or more mobile phone users. The others are China (one billion users), Russia, Brazil, the United States, Indonesia, Japan, Germany, the Philippines and Nigeria.

Introduction of 3G bandwidth services will further encourage such trends, according to Abu Sayeed Khan, a telecom consultant. He said “Because 3G services are very beneficial for us”.
GrameenPhone, now a subsidiary of Norway’s Telenor, remains the largest provider in Bangladesh, with 40% of users. It competes with Banglalink, a subsidiary of Egypt’s Orasmcom; Malaysia’s Robi; India’s Airtel; state-owned Teletalk; and Citycell.
Banglalink will provide the service by this year to its customers in Chittagong, Sylhet and Khulna, said Ziad after inaugurating the test 3G service. Grameenphone, Robi and Airtel are already committed to providing the service in some areas from the beginning of Oct. The subscribers can use their old SIM cards but must shift to a new package to get the service. Banglalink has received its 3G license recently. Banglalink subscribers can get the service through their old SIM card.
