New Fixed Networks market report from Business Monitor International: "Bangladesh Telecommunications Report Q1 2014"
[UKPRwire, Mon Dec 16 2013] Our medium-term outlook for Bangladesh's telecommunication sector remains bright, given growth potential in the nation's underserved mobile market. We predict the introduction of 3G services will trigger an upsurge in the mobile broadband sector given strong government support and latent consumer demand. Internet penetration should increase in the medium term if government stays committed to internet infrastructure investment.
Key Trends And Developments
In September 2013, Bangladesh successfully concluded its long-awaited 3G auction in early September 2013. Four operators - Grameenphone, Robi, Airtel and Banglalink - acquired 25MHz of 3G spectrum for US$525mn to join state-owned Teletalk in the 3G market.

The government of Bangladesh said that domestically-listed mobile network operators will be subjected to an increase in the rate of corporation tax from 35% to 40%. Although the proposed new rate will still be lower than that applied to non-listed operators at 45%, this may not be sufficient to offset the additional financial management and compliance reporting borne by listed companies. Being the only listed operator, Grameenphone profit after tax is expected to be negatively affected.
