Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited (BCSCL) has submitted an application in Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) last week to get the license of Bangabandhu Satellite-1.
As per source, since still there is no license policy, usually BTRC provides license for 15 years as guessed. It can be so in this regard too. The issue of this petition is likely to be raised in next meeting of BTRC. Later, it will be sent for government approval.
On May 11, Friday, at late night, Bangabandhu Satellite-1 was launched by the world famous rocket manufacturing organization SPACEX. The satellite was sent through their Falcon-9 Rocket. It reached the orbit at the end of 33 minutes journey. The satellite can also be commercially launched within next three months, as Post, Telecommunication and ICT Minister Mustafa Jabbar said.
