Mobile phone operator, Robi has recently reached the milestone of 1 million 4G subscribers within the first quarter of this year.
By this time, Robi has also expanded its 4.5G network to 425 thanas with more than 4,000 sites, reports UNB.
After the launching of 4G network on 20 February 2018, Robi, on that very day, also spread the service at all the 64 districts of the country.
Robi’s Managing Director and CEO, Mahtab Uddin Ahmed said, “Robi has become the first mobile phone operator in the country to reach 1 million subscribers milestone by the end of first quarter of this year. As of now, we are very near to achieving the 2 million 4.5G subscriber milestone. Robi had expanded its 4.5G network to 425 thanas with more than 4,000 sites by end of March. As of now, 457 thanas are covered by more than 5,200 4.5G sites.”
“Addressing the lack of 4G enabled handsets in the market our e-commerce outlet, shop.robi.com.bd, has therefore brought a large number of exciting 4G enabled smartphone offers for the customers”, he said.
Robi was persistently investing to fast-track its 4.5G network expansion and improvement of its 3.5G/2.5G network quality to ensure better customer experience both in voice and data services.
