Bangladesh; Leased line prices down, but are the customers benefited?

Posted on April 7, 2009  /  1 Comments

Bangladesh leased line prices have dropped 74%, according to LIRNEasia’s February 2009 benchmarking study.  But this reduction has not been passed onto consumers, who are still paying roughly the same price as they did in October 2008. The consumer  also receiving less for what he’s paying – our February 2009 broadband quality of service tests showed that speeds experienced by consumers were even worse than 6 months ago.

One can only hope that the lowered wholesale prices are passed down to consumers soon.  If this doesn’t happen, that at least operators buy enough bandwidth so that speeds experienced by consumers increase.

  1. Some days ago i faced an extraordinary event. My nokia phone 2600-old model was fallen from the 3rd floor from my building where i live. After that i was surprised to see that it was completely ok, though it was divided into 6 pieces. It is reasonable to say that, I am a student of Rokeya Hall, MBA, Department of Finance, University of Dhaka. I am very much satisfied with nokia handset. It is only possible for nokia that after falling from a high building it was completely ok. So HATS OFF to NOKIA.
