Khagrachhari, Rangamati and Bandarban- these three hill tracts districts are being covered under strong telecommunication network. Optical fiber network is going to be set up in these areas to speed up the information technology framework. Bangladesh Army will perform the task under direct purchase method. In this connection the proposal placed by the information and communication technology division has been approved in the 16th meeting of economic affairs ministerial committee of the government. The information was delivered by cabinet division additional secretary Shamsul Arefin after holding the meeting.

Shamsul Arefin said, the work will be implemented under ‘Connected Bangladesh’ project to set up permanent telecommunication network in these three districts. Initiatives have been taken to set up permanent network in total 59 unions. As the hilly unions are very remote and also considering security risk and barriers, the proposal has been approved in principle under direct purchase method by Bangladesh Army.
