For making available high quality and high speed internet access to Meghalaya and other North Eastern States of the country, BSNL has commissioned  additional one 10 Gbps International Bandwidth for Internet Connectivity at Agartala through Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh on 21-04-2022 which will also help in reduction of latency  and congestion in Internet Traffic.
