As Eid-ul-Fitr, the joyous festival marking the end of Ramadan, approaches, many across Bangladesh prepare to return to their hometowns to celebrate with their loved ones.

However, for countless individuals, the journey home can be fraught with challenges and discomforts, particularly during the crowded and busy travel season.

Witnessing the struggles faced by homegoing people during their commute, Banglalink, the innovative digital service provider in the country, has stepped forward to extend a helping hand and spread kindness during this festive period.

Recognizing the difficulties faced by travelers, Banglalink has already significantly increased its 4G network capacity.

This advancement of network will ensure everyone is under the coverage of Fastest 4G certified by Ookla wherever they go.

Free Bus Ride: In a significant effort to facilitate travel for homebound individuals, Banglalink will be providing free bus rides to under-privileged people traveling across the country. This initiative aims to provide ease for passengers who struggles to manage transportation due financial constraints and ensure that everyone can return home safely to celebrate the festivities with their families.
