Maintenance may disrupt nationwide Internet connection for 7 days Correspondent, Dhaka:

Internet service in Bangladesh would be disrupted temporarily for 7 days due to the maintenance work of submarine cable.

"The SEA-ME-WE-4 Consortium would carry out maintenance work of the undersea cable at its Singapore end from 12am of October 23 to 2pm of October 27 that may disrupt internet service temporarily in the country," Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited (BTCL) Director (Public Relations and Publication) Meer Mohammad Morshed told BSS.

"But, the internet service would be kept on through alternative arrangement during the period," he added.

He, however, hoped internet users in the country would not face any major problem except slow speed.

Bangladesh now connected with lone submarine cable SEA-ME-WE-4. But, it has already joined another consortium SEA-ME-WE-5 that is expected to be connected with the country in December.

Besides, the country is connected with International Terrestrial Cable (ITC) through different Indian companies.
