Bandwidth export to India is going to be inaugurated formally today morning, as both the countries have already established commercial connection through Akhaura-Agartala frontier.
Import of electricity from India will also be inaugurated on the day.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi would launch the much-talked-about bandwidth export and power import by Bangladesh through video conference.
Sheikh Hasina would click the button for inaugurating the 10 GBPS Internet bandwidth while Modi would switch on the button of supplying 100 MW power.
“We’ve already established commercial connection and Prime Ministers of both countries would open the transmission of bandwidth formally through video conference tomorrow morning,” Managing Director of Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL) Monwar Hossain told BSS on Tuesday.
