Bangladesh: International Internet Gateways Do Not Support IPv6

Ahamed Bauani is concerned that the two International Internet Gateways (IIGW) operational in Bangladesh do not support IPv6 and “do not have any plan to do so”. The blogger advocates for creating a group to pressurize the government to take step to connect Bangladesh with IPv6 network via IIGW.

  • Thanks for your support to spreed the concern to make both Government Own IIGW (BTCL), Privately Own (MangoTel) has sufficient equipment to support IPv6 Routing, Only need it to enable and Manage.

    Upstreams like Tata Communication in India or SingTEL in Singapore is currently major gateway of Bangladesh to Internet World. The Seabone in Italy is another gateway where major EU traffic pass through has IPv6 Support. So, why not BTCL or MangoTEL is creating BGP Peer with them to connect IPv6 Network?

    Group name IPv6 in Bangladesh has been created to share the experience and knowledge on IPv6 along with pressure Bangladesh Government & Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Board (BTRC) to enable IPv6 support on International Internet Gateway(s) of Bangladesh.
