In Bangladesh, Internet and overseas telecom services were once again disrupted for around 15 hours from early Tuesday night when criminals severed optical fiber lines near Cox's Bazar and Feni.
Since installation of this line in 2006, this is the 22nd case of disruption and second in the running week. Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board (BTTB) claims that this is the seventh case of "an act of sabotage" aimed at disrupting the country's international telecom and Internet activities.
Senior Vice President of Bangladesh Association of Software & Information Services (BASIS), Mr. Rafiqul Islam said this kind of disruption has a negative impact on Bangladesh’s software industry.
