Internet price and providers in Bangladesh; Free WiFi spots

October 11, 2014

All mobile operators of Bangladesh provide 3G internet service and speed is good for usual email, facebook, internet banking, price comparison etc. For video streaming a bit faster package may be chosen and obviously it will be little costly. However, the price of internet is cheap or almost same compared with European countries or USA. The price of different packages could be found from their website. By the by, in generally you could use the same sim for voice call and internet browsing.

There are five mobile operators in Bangladesh – Banglalink, Grameen Phone, Robi, Airtell, Citycell and the state-run Teletalk.Call rate, sim card price, service centre location in their websites. The following website provide links to all providers.

Wimax internet( only if you plan to stay longer time and in city areas)

For wimax internet, one needs to have separate modem to be bought from the providers. Such modem price starts from BDT 2000. Since these wimax providers only deals with interent service, their speed is usually better and price is cheaper. However, they cover only Dhaka and some other major cities, not whole Bangladesh. Currently there are three wimax operators as follows:

Free WiFi

Bangladesh currently has limited access to free WiFi services, although the situation is gradually improving. Free WiFi hotspots are found predominantly in urban areas and are not common in small towns or rural regions.

Some cafes and restaurants also have a free WiFi service when you purchase food or drink. For example, Coffee World at Uttara, Dhaka provides free wifi:

Some of Bangladesh’s accommodation providers provide free WiFi for guests. It’s a good idea to check if this service is offered at the time of booking. For example, ASCOTT The Residence, an exotic hotel located in the diplomatic zone of Baridhara, Dhaka provides free WiFi:
