The Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) region in south-eastern Bangladesh has finally been brought under coverage of mobile phone services with the launching of test operations by state-owned Teletalk in the Bandarban, Rangamati and Khagrachhari districts, reports local newspaper The Daily Star. The three hilly districts, which border India and Myanmar (Burma) and have a population of over a million, are reportedly the last in Bangladesh to be connected to mobile networks. Local sources also said private operators have begun installing base stations in the CHT.
