Bangladesh's Warid Telecom an d Citycell have agreed to share elements of their network infrastructure. In addition to base transceiver stations (BTS), the two companies will share towers, poles, transmitter equipment, transmission bandwidth and power.
Rival operators, Grameenphone, Banglalink and Robi (formerly Aktel) have already signed infrastructure sharing deals as part of a regulator mandated project.
"To my view, infrastructure sharing is a must for all operators if they are to reach every corner of the country. By collaborating with Citycell, we have moved one step forward in serving our customers cost-effectively with wider coverage and greater capacity. It is a win-win deal for both the parties," said Warid CEO Chris Tobit.
