Low speed internet against high payment is a common topic of discussion among the students now a days in CUET. Students suffered before from horrible condition of internet provided by the varsity. Frequent claims of students finally resulted a private broadband service in the campus arena. Every month students are counting a good amount of money as internet payment. 1000 taka against 8 mbps for 4 users, 600tk against 6 mbps for 3 users and 4 mbps by 600 tk for 2 users of internet service.
On asking, Feroz AL Mahmud a fourth year student said, The condition of internet speed is too low that sometimes we need 15 to 20 minutes for downloading a small pdf file. Low speed internet service wasting both time and money from us. Sometimes we are required to collect information from internet to complete our assignment but it too much time spending and tedious to complete using such low speed internet.
Calling ‘Info.com’ a helpline of internet provider of CUET , the contact number of their manager was asked but they declined to give it and said that most of the time their manager stays abroad. He also said that the workers barely see him. Asking about the overall low speed of the campus he replied, we had a connection problem in the main line from Dhaka to Chittagong line due to heavy rain.
On the other hand, most of the students claimed that Whenever they call over phone to “INFO.COM” and tell them about the low speed, they always say that they are having problem in the main connection line and fixing it.
On asking this point the internet provider told, boss we are trying to give you the best output but sometimes we face some problems, we will inform this to our management authority.
In a conversation meeting with the VC of CUET, students alleged the matter and He replied that, we have been informed about the matter. Necessary actions will be taken immediately.
