Slow internet nationwide as 2nd submarine cable damaged by excavator

Internet services across the country have been disrupted after the 2nd submarine cable was damaged in Patuakhali while “moving sand”.

The incident happened this noon when locals were moving sand using excavator and damaged the power supply and optical fibre cables of the SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable, reports Bangla daily Prothom Alo quoting Mashiur Rahman, managing director of Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL).

About half of the bandwidth of internet usage in the country are received from the 2nd submarine cable, which is the reason behind the slow connectivity, the BSCCL MD said.
