Honorable Secretary
Ministry of Posts and Telecommunication (MoPT)
Subject : Comments on Draft “National Telecommunications Policy 2015”
The Department of Electronics and communications Engineering, East West
University appreciates the opportunity to provide its views and comments concerning
the issues raised in the consultation “National Telecommunications Policy 2015”.
The National Telecom Policy admirably sets a goal of creating a national network
through the convergence of fixed and wireless services that will bring voice, data and
video services to all of Bangladesh. This is an ambitious plan that would create
“Broadband on Demand” in Bangladesh.
We sincerely believe that the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunication (MoPT)
would consider our comments in the perspective and expect forward-looking
recommendations on subject matter.

University
addresses each of the draft
policy’s
key
objectives
and

corresponding strategy recommendations
below.
Comments and Opinions about “National
Telecommunications Policy 2015”.
1. Preamble
1.1 Telecommunications and associated applications have long been recognized as key
enablers of the three dimensions of sustainable development- economic growth,
environmental balance and social inclusion. The Government of Bangladesh has
declared the ‘Vision 2021’, to become a middle income country by 2021. As part of
realizing this vision, the ‘Digital Bangladesh’ agenda of the Government embodies the
philosophy of effective use of modern technology in implementing Government’s
plans in education, agriculture, health, job creation and poverty reduction. Existence
of a robust Telecommunications and IT ecosystem is mandatory to achieve our long
cherished development goals.
1.2 To leverage the enabling role of Telecommunications, the National
Telecommunications Policy, 1998 laid the basic design of a liberalized
telecommunication sector in Bangladesh. It paved the way for separation of the
policy, regulation, and operational functions that were centralized at that time.

1.3 Based on the 1998 Policy, the government enacted the Bangladesh
Telecommunication Regulation Act, 2001 (the Act). Several amendments have been
made to this Act so far, to address the growing needs of the sector. For further
improvement in the service delivery, the government integrated Telecommunications
and IT activities and formed the Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications and
Information Technology following the strategy of the 6th five year plan1.
1.4 Substantial development has taken place on all fronts in telecommunication
services including internet, mobile and broadband since the adoption of the 1998
Policy. However, the expansion momentum of broadband in rural areas has been
slower than urban areas. Due to rapid technological changes in recent years, the sector
became more interdependent with the global trends of regulation, market structure,
and customer needs. Along with the prospects of the new technologies, citizens are
being exposed to different new threats from the cyberspace. The issues related to
telecommunications and ITs are not remain confined within the boundary of the
country. Hence, the 1998 Policy and associated legislations requires revision to reflect
the demands of the present day and the future.
1.5 The aspirations associated with this new National Telecommunications Policy is to
involve next generation by establishing all-inclusive telecommunications and IT
services equally in rural and urban areas to accelerate national economic growth for a
prosperous digital Bangladesh.
