Bangladesh building second submarine cable landing station in Maitbhanga area of Kuakata
25 October 2016 |
Bangladesh has started work on its second submarine cable landing station in the Patuakhali district of the country.
Construction work on Bangladesh's second submarine landing station is currently underway. The new connection to the 20,000km-long SEA-ME-WE-5 submarine cable, which stretches from Singapore to the Middle East to Western Europe and connects 17 countries, will provide high-speed internet services at less cost than the first cable.

Once the country gets its second connection, it will obtain bandwidth of more than 1,300 gigabits per second (Gbps) in addition to 200 Gbps bandwidth from the existing SEA-ME-WE-4 connection.
The country obtained its first submarine cable connection, SEA-ME-WE-4, in 2006.
