Banglion Pays remaining License fee

BanglaLion Communication, a WiMAX licensee, said it has paid the due license acquisition fee to the telecom watchdog, ensuring the company's plan to launch the first ever-high speed broadband internet service in Bangladesh.

"We paid the dues within the deadline that expired on March 31," Parvez Ahmed Shamim, BanglaLion's WiMAX project consultant, said yesterday. BanglaLion's payment in full to the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has ensured two private sector WiMAX licensees in the country. Augere Wireless Broadband Bangladesh Ltd is the other WiMAX license holder that cleared its payment in due time.

WiMAX license holders appeared in court to extend the deadline for depositing the license acquisition fees to BTRC. Mango Telecom is yet to manage the required license fee, said Mir Masud Kabir, managing director of Mango Telecom.
