PGCB is extended countrywide connectivity through Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) placed over exsisting network where they can establish their nodes at substations of each PGCB station.
Summit communications ltd. has signed an agreement with PGCB (were BTRC acts as mediator), for 15 years. PGCB will make provision of 01 pair dark fiber at designated zone wise station (Fiber Drop Point), where they can establish their nodes. Under this project we will expand 1800 km optical fiber network on 26 districts and 40 upazillas.
