Dhaka: Bangladesh's biggest cellphone operator Grameenphone announced the roll-out of its 3G network in capital Dhaka. The network will eventually cover the entire nation.

Grameenphone, 55.8 percent owned by Norwegian Telecom Company Telenor and 34.2 percent owned by local Grameen Telecom, made the announcement at a conference Sunday, a few weeks after its acquisition of 3G spectrum, Xinhua reported.

Bangladesh's Minister for Post and Telecommunications Shahara Khatun inaugurated the 3G network together with Jon Fredrik Baksaas, chief executive officer of Telenor Group, and senior government and Grameenphone officials.

Speaking at the ceremony, Khatun said Grameenphone, which has coverage across all south Asian countries and has over 44 million subscribers, would shortly expand the 3G services around the country.

"I would like to thank Grameenphone for taking the initiative to roll out 3G early. I hope that Grameenphone will expand 3G services around the country the way it had taken mobile telephony to people of this country," Khatun said.

For the time being, the network would be used by its employees and some selected customers who were expected to give valuable feedback ahead of the commercial launch, Grameenphone said in a statement.

As previously announced, Grameenphone said it planned to launch commercial 3G services by early October in selected areas of Dhaka and Chittagong.
