Information Technologies have generated profound changes in human society. These are quite different from social transformations caused by earlier scientific advances. The ICT sector of Bangladesh is one of the fastest growing sectors of its economy. ICT has been declared as the thrust sector by the Government for poverty alleviation and socio economic development.
For the development of ICT sector within the framework of overall national development, the Government has taken different initiatives including but not limited to Approved National ICT and Broadband Policy, Issue Nationwide Telecommunication Transmission Network (NTTN) & different gateway licenses, Approved projects like Bangla Gov Net, Info Sarkar etc. The Vision of these initiatives aims to have a country-wide ICT-infrastructure which will ensure access to information by every citizen to facilitate empowerment of people and enhance democratic values and norms for sustainable economic development by using the infrastructure for human resources development, governance, e-commerce, banking, public utility services and all sorts of on-line ICT-enabled services.
In this vision, we are working closely with the Government, Telecom Operators, ISPs and other ANS operators to ensure their entire needs for telecommunication transmission infrastructure. In that light, we are working day and night to expand our infrastructure to reach in the remotest part of the country. While focusing on expansion, SCL maintains strict adherence to industry compliance, health and safety regulations and overall regulatory guidelines. By cohesively supporting the government and the industry as a whole through carrier grade fiber optic architecture, SCL is well placed to capture significant synergies in the longer term. The vision includes facilitating broadband internet, data connectivity and its technological adaptation to the lives of common people, enterprises and the Government Institutions.
