At this time, the mayor said that our initiative is aimed at building a smart Chittagong to implement the Smart Bangladesh vision announced by the Prime Minister. Today a new era has started in Chittagong. Dish, internet connection cable management under the supervision of city corporation will reduce accidents on electric pillars, increase the beauty of the city. Traders will also benefit as wire cutting and theft will be prevented.

“The importance of Chittagong as a commercial city at the national and international level is fading due to the tangle of wires. For the sake of the beauty and safety of the city, we want to remove the cable clutter by establishing order. In the next 6 months we will initially take 3 wards hanging dish-internet underground. After that, we will use the experience of three wards to take the dish-internet of the whole city underground.”

Arif Al Islam, Managing Director of Summit Communications Limited, said at the signing ceremony, “We will build waterproof fiber optic infrastructure by using ducting and drainage and sewage system. “Fiber to the home” technology will be used from the main road to alleys and from there every house will be connected.

“Because of our technical capabilities, any ISP can accept any connection speed they want. There will be no interruption in service delivery. Besides, we will also keep in mind the fact that dish businesses will launch digital dish cable within the next 5 years. Utilizing the experience of 3 wards, we will de-clutter the entire city.”
