Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – After remaining switched off for two years, RanksTel has taken steps to resume its operations soon, the land phone operator said.
The operator has already started the re-registration process of its more than 0.03 million customers, according to the company statement.
“We’ve developed our network in the last six months to resume our operations,” Chief Operating Officer of the company AKM Shamsuddin said, adding that the company emphasized ensuring interconnectivity with other operators and providing the lowest call rates to its customers.
He also said RanksTel aims to provide a land phone to every house along with SMS and different kinds of value-added services, he said.
Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission cancelled RanksTel’s licence in May 2010, along with other four operators. The regulator returned the licences to the operators in July 2011.
