Internet speed slows down after problems with submarine cable in Kuakata

Internet users in Bangladesh are experiencing slow speeds as the power supply to a submarine cable has been disrupted at Kuakata in Patuakhali district.

Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Ltd, is working for recovery, said Moshiur Rahman, managing director of BSCCL on Sunday.

“There is a problem in the power supply of the second submarine cable (SEA-ME-WE-5) in Patuakhali. Work is going on since afternoon to fix it. Hopefully that will be resolved by today. About half of the bandwidth usage in the country is supplied from the second submarine cable. The internet is slowing down across the country following closure of the line,” he said.

According to BSCCL, Bangladesh was connected with the first submarine SEA-ME-WE-4 in 2005. Bangladesh was connected to SEA-ME-WE 5 in 2017 through the 2nd submarine cable landing station in Kalapara of Patuakhali.

Bangladesh receives 1,500 gigabits per second or Gbps of bandwidth from the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe International Consortium Submarine Cable (SEA-ME-WE-5) through the landing station.
