Bangladesh regains internet connectivity
Published On: Sunday, April 17, 2010
Dhaka, Apr 18 (bdnews24.com) – Bangladesh's internet connectivity was restored to its full capacity at 2 pm on Sunday.
A fault in a submarine cable on the 14 April resulted in Bangladesh losing all its internet communication with countries to the west of the cable including Europe.
The fault was repaired by Mango Teleservices Limited, an International Internet Gateway (IIG) operator in Bangladesh.
The company said in a press release that the problem was detected in the cable between Alexandria and Marseilles.
A senior official at the BTCL's submarine cable project had told bdnews24.com on Apr 15 that a short circuit at the Italian landing station at Palermo had caused the problem.
On Dec 21, 2008 Bangladesh faced a similar kind of connectivity disruption, which was restored after 18 hours.
