Description

  1. Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) is a statutory body under the ICT Division, Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications & IT. The Government of Bangladesh is actively adopting IT infrastructure in order to improve public services. The Government of Bangladesh is also getting substantial foreign cooperation in terms of financial assistance and technical collaboration for Development of National ICT Infra-Network for Bangladesh Government Phase-III (“Info-Sarker Phase-3”).

Info-Sarker-Phase 3 is an extension of government ICT network to the lowest tier of administration i.e. Union from existing network up to sub-district (Upazila) through Info-Sarker-2 and BanglaGovNet (Info-Sarker Phase 1) projects.

A High-Speed backbone network with high capacity bandwidth using Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology will be established in 64 districts and 488 Upazilas (sub-districts) by expanding existing backbone network through optical fiber cable (about 20,000 km) to 2600 rural location (Union) within June 2018. At least 60% of the population will be directly benefited from this project. The project is expected to increase the fixed broadband connectivity from existing 5% of household to more than 15% of household and is expected to contribute 1% increase of GDP.
