Warid Sign Cost-Cutting Deal with Citycell
Monday, 12 April 2010

Warid Telecom and Citycell, two major mobile phone company operators in Bangladesh, will share each others infrastructure, reducing the two companies' costs.

The agreement was signed on Sunday by the Chief Executive Officers of the companies.

Under the deal, Warid will be able to share the infra-structural equipment rooms of Citycell.

"This kind of infrastructure sharing is the first of its kind among two operators in Bangladesh," Chris Tobit, CEO and managing director of Warid Telecom said at the signing ceremony.

Tobit added that the deal will allow them to share Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) including towers, poles, transmitter equipment, transmission bandwidth and power.

According to a top Warid official, infrastructure sharing between all the operators in Bangladesh will be necessary to ensure wider coverage.

"We have moved one step forward in serving customers cost-effectively with wider coverage and greater capacity," he said

Speaking on the occasion, Citycell CEO Mehboob Chowdhury said the agreement would allow them to provide better coverage in an "environment-friendly manner".

In late March, similiar memorandum of understandings were signed by Warid and two other mobile companies, BTCL and Teletalk
