Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Mostafa Jabbar said bandwidth, the process of supplying data at the prescribed speeds measured in bits per second, is being exported to neighbouring country India from Bangladesh.

"The bandwidth is being exported to the neighbouring country India", said the minister while responding to a tabled written question made by M Abdul Latif of Chattogram-11 at the Jatiya Sangsad here today.

Primarily, the minister said Bangladesh is leasing 10gbps bandwidth to Indian's north-eastern states as per the agreement signed between Bangladesh and India on June 6, 2015.

On March 23, 2016, Jabbar said the leasing programme was inaugurated through the video conferencing held between the Prime Ministers of India and Bangladesh.
