Bangladeshi Wimax operator Banglalion will be allowed to launch LTE services. The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BRTC) has given Banglalion permission to introduce LTE services, the Dhaka Tribune reports. Last year, Banglalion was denied approval to provide LTE services. Recently, the BTRC also approved a similar request from Wimax rival Qubee and the mobile operators with a 3G licence are also allowed to offer LTE services.
