-- BanglaLion, one of the WiMAX license holders will not be able to start their operation in June due to technical difficulties. It may take at least one or one and half month more for them to start offering Internet and data service.

In that case Bangladesh may get the taste of WiMAX at the end of July. By the end of 2009, the service will be activated completely only in capital Dhaka. Previously a promise of activating WiMAX at the beginning of June was made by top placed earned in auction, BanglaLion Communications. But the organization even could not start test operation yet. On the other hand Augere is facing frequency problem. They also will not be able to start test before August.
When asked about the delay chairman of BanglaLion Communications Major (retired) Abdul Mannan said, though we were supposed to start in June we still have not reached the stage of serving customers. However he expressed hope of starting test operation in June. He said, it’s a new technology in Bangladesh.
