Almost 70% (1,714 out of 2,528) of mobile network sites in Sylhet, Sunamganj and Netrokona districts have been reconnected till yesterday (June 25, 2022).

Some 190 such sites are still off the grid due to lack of electricity in these three neighborhoods, which authorities hope to be able to connect soon.

Three National Telecommunications Transmission Network (NTTN) operators (Bahon Limited, Fiber at Home Limited and Summit Communications Limited) provide mobile networks in the three flood-prone districts. Most of the Link Peripheral Processors (LPP) of these network providers are currently active.

The number of active LPPs has also increased since Friday.

A total of 105 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide Internet connections in Sylhet, Sunamganj, Netrokona and adjacent districts. These ISP companies have approximately 375 points of presence (PoPs) in these areas.

The floods caused a severe shortage of electricity in the network facilities of these companies, rendering 34 of these points of presence inactive.

Internet service providers are doing their best to keep Internet connections stable in these flooded areas.
