Cell Tower Installation Crucial for Better Mobile Services

Industry: Mobile, Telecom & Mobile

The installation of over 300 cell towers crucial for improving mobile services in Dhaka is being hindered by health concerns surrounding their operation. Industry experts highlight the need for collaborative efforts between building owners, residents, and government authorities to address these concerns and identify suitable locations for tower installations.

The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) emphasizes the importance of cooperation to overcome these challenges and ensure the installation of cell towers. Illegal network jammers exacerbate the situation by causing disruptions in service.

Ongoing initiatives aim to resolve installation issues and clarify that mobile networks primarily emit non-ionized radiation, which poses minimal harm to human health. It is essential for the public to understand that excessive exposure to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) from mobile networks falls within the non-ionized category.

Stay informed about the progress being made to address installation challenges and improve mobile connectivity in Dhaka, as efforts continue to dispel misconceptions and provide better services for residents.
