Internet service faces disruption across country

Internet services across the country are disrupted due to the suspension of the connection of the second submarine cable (SIMUI-5) of the country.

According to tot the authorities, The outage began early Saturday as the disruption was caused by the damaged submarine cable in Singapore.

Mirza Kamal Ahmed, managing director of the state-owned bandwidth provider Bangladesh Submarine Cables PLC (BSCPLC), said, "Through SMW-5, we were providing 1,600gb per second of bandwidth to the country, which is now entirely down. We are trying to arrange alternatives using SMW-4 (the first submarine cable)."

"Due to a fibre cable issue in Singapore, similar situations have arisen in several other countries alongside Bangladesh," he added.

Mirza Kamal Ahmed also said it will take at least 2 to 3 days to resume the connection.
