The presence of international terrestrial cable (ITC) and the second submarine cable, SEA-ME-WE-5, will prevent internet speed from dropping drastically

Internet users may experience slow internet speed from July 25-30 due to the repair work on the submarine cable, SEA-ME-WE-4.

Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL) Managing Director Mashiur Rahman told UNB on Sunday that repair work and setting up of repeaters will be conducted during the period.

He, however, said the presence of international terrestrial cable (ITC) and the second submarine cable, SEA-ME-WE-5, will prevent internet speed from dropping drastically.

Bangladesh was connected to the first submarine cable, SEA-ME-WE-4, in 2005, through which it receives up to 250 Gbps of bandwidth.

Later in September 2017, the landing station of the 2nd submarine cable, SEA-ME-WE-5, was set up in Patuakhali’s Kalapara.

Through the second cable, Bangladesh is said to receive 1,500 Gbps worth of internet.

The country is also connected to six alternative submarine cables.
