Internet & Phone service in Bangladesh

Internet & Phone service in Bangladesh

Cell phone rates here are among the lowest in the world. Most operators provide GSM service meaning if you have an unlocked GSM 900 phone that accepts a SIM card (please check with your carrier or phone vendor), you are good to go!

 

To purchase a local SIM card you will need:

Two passport size photographs
An application fee, usually around Tk 500 (less than $10)


The providers include Banglalink, Grameen Phone, Robi, Warid, Citycell and the state-run Teletalk. You can “top-up” with pre‐paid value and begin making calls. If you get a phone with Internet service, you can be used as well. Other than that, Internet cafes are available in all the cities, and especially in Dhaka.
