Internet is becoming an integral part of daily life. It is therefore crucial to know which areas have the best Internet service in the country. Particular urban areas are more privileged to the world of Internet, such as Dhaka, which has the best Internet connection in Bangladesh. However, thanks to mobile operators chiming in with their 3G network, coverage outside urban areas has been substantial. There are mainly three types of Internet service providers:
– Wireless Broadband Service (WiMax)
– Broadband Service
– Wireless 3G Internet
WiMax providers in Bangladesh come with impressive speed and excellent service. But the downfall is their coverage outside of Dhaka. Chittagong and other regions like Rajshahi only have strong signal in specific areas where there are more concentrated users and demand is higher. Residents of Dhaka have better coverage due to a higher population subscribing to the WiMax, hence better distribution of network. Particularly in affluent neighborhoods like Gulshan, Banani, Baridhara, Bashundhara, customers can avail the maximum signal strength of wireless broadband.
A vast array of broadband service providers are distributed nationwide. Extending to 64 districts of the country, only differing in bandwidth, the quality of the Internet is still best in the capital city, where the best Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are located, with incredible speeds for residential as well as corporate function. The developing infrastructure of other regions is catching up fast. Especially with ADSL broadband (BTCL), which only requires a landline telephone connection – Internet accessibility is improving everywhere. High priority areas include Dhaka Cantonment, Mirpur or Banasree. The Bangladesh government has also taken initiatives to implement hotspot zones in popular areas in Dhaka with a high volume of users. The best broadband providers like Link3 Technology give first class connectivity in Uttara, Bashundhara, Dhanmondi and Mirpur.
Contributing to the exponential growth of Internet usage in the country are the mobile operators offering 3G Internet packages. Urban areas are no longer the only location with access to fast Internet connectivity, as 3G coverage from TeleTalk, Grameenphone and Robi reaches all ends of the country. TeleTalk seems to be the preferred option, whilst Grameenphone and Robi are more popular in Dhaka, where the signal is strong.
Undoubtedly, Internet connectivity is improving, and as it is becoming more accessible, there will be more users. Soon, the entire nation will be connected by the fastest Internet.
