The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications and Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission are preparing for finalising the number of VoIP service providers by December.
The telecom regulator will complete evaluating the applications of the local entrepreneurs for licence authorisation in the beginning of December and after that the ministry will prepare the final list within days.
BTRC Chairman Sunil Kanti Bose told bdnews24.com on Thursday that they would complete evaluating the applications either at the end of November or at the beginning of December and then send those to the ministry.
The former Telecom Secretary said the licences are expected to be finalised in two weeks after sending the applications to the ministry, which will determine how many will be issued.
“The licences are likely to be issued early January,” he said.
