4G is now available in Bangladesh and few mobile operators are successfully offering 4G network around the country, or in major districts at least as per their claim. But what is the real situation of 4G network availability? Is the network strong? What is the download speed? How is the availability? These are all valid questions I have been asking for.
Recently, I have discovered a YouTube video where the 4G coverage of Grameenphone, Robi and Banglalink were thoroughly tested inside Dhaka division. They went to different places inside and outside Dhaka city including some rural areas to compare the performance of all three operators. This review was so well done that, for the first time we have decided to share a third party review on our website. The reviewer used the Tecno Camon I smartphone to test all of the operators so that, the performance of the mobile doesn’t influence the network performance.
Many including me were thinking that Grameenphone must have the best 4G network so far since GP has a reputation for strong network around Bangladesh. But surprisingly enough, GP came last in the test. In many places in Dhaka division, GP 4G was not available at all and only 3G signal was available. The 4G download speed of GP was very poor as well almost everywhere. Banglalink gave moderate performance among the 3 operators. But Robi absolutely dominated the game. Robi was standing out clearly as the best 4G network or their so-called 4.5G network in Bangladesh. Both network availability and download speed were way better than the other two operators in every single place. It will surely bring more customers to Robi since mobile internet users are increasing rapidly in Bangladesh and the main issue in speed as well as network availability. However, the network was still poor in some places from all of the operators and in some places there was no 4G signal at all. So, the overall infrastructure of the mobile network still needs a lot of improvement here in BD. For now, Robi is clearly ahead of the game by providing a successful start and they are leading the next generation mobile internet experience for Bangladeshi pupils.
