Learn How To Use Free Internet in Bangladesh in 2020
Bangladesh yesterday was the 10th country to give free internet access via Internet.org, a non-profit Facebook platform that allows free online browsing through mobile gadgets.
In conjunction with the ICT division of the Government and Mobile Operator Robi, this service was launched for 23 web sites initially.
The service is only available to Robi subscribers. Users can not open connections, however, and free upload or download any image or video.
It began for 90 days initially but will be extended, said the Robi officials.
Zunaid Ahmed Palak, ICT Division Minister of State, told the Westin Hotel Service in Dhaka that “this will be a landmark in creating a digital Bangladesh.”
“Other operators can contact and launch us too,” said Markku Makelainento, the director of global operator partnerships at Internet.org. “Users can access popular websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, ESPN Cricinfo, some local newspapers, e-commerce and education.
The chief operating officer of Robi, Mahtab Uddin Ahmed, said that the Internet speed won’t descend for the free service.
Robi, the third largest operation subscriber operator, expects that thanks to the service the number of its internet users will increase by around 15 percent.
According to the Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission, Robi had 1.2 Crore Internet users of the country’s 4.43 Crore Internet users as of March.
On 21 August 2013, Internet.org was created to make it easier to access the web worldwide. In Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, Kenya, India, Zambia, Indonesia, Guatemala and the Philippines Internet.org has been launched beforehand.
