Government decided to increase Internet Service Providers’ (ISP) license fee 10 to 25 times more. Even, the companies have to pay 2% of their total annual income to the government. In case of implementation of this decision, internet service cost will get higher up to the consumer level.
The decisions regarding ISP policy have been taken in the Special Commission Meeting of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) held in the current month. For the final approval, the decisions taken in the meeting already had been sent to the Post and Telecommunication Division.
