Bangladesh - officially the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, is a country in South Asia. It is surrounded by India on all sides except for a small border with Myanmar to the far southeast and the Bay of Bengal to the south. Together with the Indian state of West Bengal, it makes up the ethno-linguistic region of Bengal. The name Bangladesh means "Country of Bengal" in the official Bengali language.

The borders of Bangladesh were set by the Partition of India in 1947, when it became the eastern wing of Pakistan (East Pakistan), separated from the western wing by 1,600 kilometres (1,000 miles). Despite their common religion of Islam, the ethnic and linguistic gulf between the two wings, compounded by an apathetic government based in West Pakistan, resulted in the independence of Bangladesh under the leadership of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971 after the bloody Bangladesh Liberation War, in which it was supported by India. The years following independence have been marked by political turmoil, with thirteen different heads of government, and at least four military coups.

The population of Bangladesh ranks seventh in the world, but its land area is ranked ninety-fourth, making it one of the most densely populated countries in the world.

162,855,651 population for 2016, according to Census Bureau.

Bangladesh Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Bangladesh Internet Market Overview and Statistics Report
The Internet came late to Bangladesh with connectivity in 1996. In the last few years it has grown dramatically, although obviously from a very low base. With an estimated user base of around 500,000 in early 2006, representing only a 0.35% penetration, the local Internet industry is preparing to move into the next stage of its development. As this report demonstrates, however, the country must work hard to overcome obstacles associated with the country’s lowly economic status and still developing infrastructure. The report also looks briefly at the coming of broadband Internet and e-commerce in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Mobile Communications Overview and Broadcasting Report
Over the last two to three years, the number of mobile subscribers in Bangladesh has been more than doubling on an annual basis.

The entry of new operators into the market has certainly helped to further boost the competitive environment. This report describes how the mobile market is growing and the impact this is having on the developing nation, as well as providing an outline of the main players. The report also provides a brief overview of the country’s TV broadcasting sector.
