The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has decided to reduce the bandwidth capacity Grameenphone and Robi as they failed to pay their dues to the government.

Zakir Hossain Khan, Senior Assistant Director (PR) of BTRC, told UNB that 30 per cent bandwidth capacity of GP and 15 percent of Robi will be slashed as they could not clear their dues despite repeated notices.

Zakir said GP, the country's largest mobile phone operator, has Tk 125.8 billion dues to the government, including Tk 40.8 billion to the National Board of Revenue (NBR).

Robi has dues of Tk 8.7 billion to the government, including Tk 1.9 billion to the NBR alone, Zakir added.

He said the BTRC would send a letter to International Internet Gateway (IIGW) to implement its decision.
