Robi significantly improves 4.5G data experience on its network

Dhaka, 04 January 2022: Robi has recently completed a major network upgradation project that has significantly improved network experience in both indoor and outdoor areas. In order to ensure much improved indoor coverage, Robi has deployed maximum number of L900 sites in the country. On the other hand, the company has also deployed significant number of L2100 4G sites to ensure smooth outdoor experience for customers.

While the network upgradation project spanned across the country, special focus was given in widening the 4.5G network coverage network in Sylhet and Mymensingh divisions. Considering the requirements of growing data usage, Robi has deployed the highest amount of bandwidth (20MHz) in 1800 MHz spectrum among all operators.

Starting from the middle of 2021, Robi has allocated 30 to 35 MHz bandwidth for 4G handsets which can facilitate data usage from multiple spectrum bands. This has significantly improved internet experience and increased data speed by 30-50% for those using such 4G smartphones.

Robi’s Chief Commercial Officer, Shihab Ahmad said, “World class data experience is the key to our promise of delivering new experiences in the lives of our customers. In this connection, our network upgradation goes a long way in delivering our promise to the customers. Along with tremendous growth in data market share, we are ending 2021 with 30mn data users and majority of whom are heavy 4.5G data users. Our digital transformation journey is hence very much on track.”

Robi also has state-of-the-art hardware to ensure best possible data service experience through the use of dual-band capable 4T4R radios. This technology is used by operators in Malaysia, China, Japan, Thailand etc.
