Subscribers in Bangladesh will enjoy reduced international roaming charges, better internet security, freedom from junk mails, and wider access to international communication.

Then he added:

Of the 144 states having voting power, 89 signed an agreement to comply with the amended regulations, while some developed countries from the rest 55 did not agree to the amendments.
