AIR PICS
Government of Bangladesh yesterday ordered telecom operators to stop 3G, 4G and LTE networks in the Rohingya camp areas in the Teknaf and Ukhia of Cox's Bazar. The secretary general of the Association of Mobile Telecom Operators of Bangladesh S.M. Farhad said that only 2G services will remain active in the area. However, with 2G services internet connectivity is almost impossible to work.

The operators had already halted sale of SIM cards in the area following government instructions. It had also instructed telecom operators to shut down 3G and 4G network connections between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. in these camps.
