The country will get the Fifth Generation (5G) technology by early 2021 and users will come under the service by 2026.
The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission on Wednesday officially disclosed its work plan of making 5G internet service available across the country.
The commission revealed the information during a programme titled "Seminar on 5G in Bangladesh" held at Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh at Dhaka's Ramna.
Now, the commission is working on a guideline for 5G, and it has already formed a committee headed by Commission Member (Spectrum) Aminul Hasan.
Posts and Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar said, "5G and fourth industrial revolution are interrelated."
Chairman of the commission, Md Jahurul Haque also spoke at the programme.
On July 25 last year, the commission ran a trial on 5G at the "Bangladesh 5G Summit 2018" organised by the Chinese telecom company Huawei in association with mobile service provider Robi, where Huawei technology demonstrated up to 4.36 gigabyte per second speed for mobile network.
The government introduced 4G services in 2018 and 3G in 2013.
