70 pc of mobile network sites resume in 3 districts

A total of 1,714 out of 2,528 mobile network sites in Sylhet, Sunamganj and Netrokona districts were re-connected till Saturday.

Some 190 such sites are still out of network due to lack of electricity in these three districts, which the authorities hope will be connected shortly.

Three Nationwide Telecommunication Transmission Network (NTTN) operators (Bahon Limited, Fiber at Home Limited and Summit Communications Limited) provide mobile networks in the three flood-prone districts. Most of the Link Peripheral Processors (LPP) of these network providers are currently active, UNB reports.

The number of active LPPs also increased till Friday.

A total of 105 Internet Service Providers (ISP) provide internet connections in Sylhet, Sunamganj, Netrokona and adjacent districts. These ISP companies have around 375 Point of Presence (PoP) in these areas.

Flooding has caused severe shortage of electricity in the network installations of these companies, turning 34 of these PoPs’ inactive.

The ISP companies are trying their best to keep internet connections stable in these flooded areas.
