Citycell to get spectrum after board meeting, BTRC to SC


Mobile phone operator Citycell will get spectrum after board meeting of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC).


BTRC informed this to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) through its lawyer Sheikh Fazle Noor Tapas on Sunday.


Sheikh Fazle Noor Tapas told the Supreme Court that a board meeting of BTRC scheduled for today (Sunday) will take decision about reinstating the spectrum allocation of the mobile operator.


Earlier in the day, the Appellate Division bench led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha asked BTRC to explain why it is yet to reinstate the spectrum allocation of Citycell following a petition by Citycell.


Citycell’s lawyer AM Aminuddin told the apex court on the day that BTRC is yet to reopen its spectrum although the Appellate Division issued directives in this regard on Thursday.


On that day, the apex court asked the government to reinstate spectrum allocation of Citycell and let it continue operations for now, with a fresh deadline to pay Tk 100 crore by November 19.
