DHAKA, Bangladesh and MINNEAPOLIS -- Access Telecom, a leading Internet Service Provider in Bangladesh, and NextNet Wireless, Inc., the world’s largest provider of non-line-of-sight (NLOS) plug-and-play broadband wireless access systems, today announced the commercial availability of XSTREAM NLOS, a wireless broadband service for business and residential users. Access Telecom was the first ISP in Bangladesh to introduce broadband services, commencing operation in 2000. Once again, Access Telecom is the first to deliver commercial NLOS plug-and-play broadband services operating over licensed 3.5GHz wireless spectrum. The company plans to expand XSTREAM NLOS across Dhaka over the next 12 months, later expanding to other major cities in Bangladesh, including Chittagong and Sylhet.

The XSTREAM NLOS service provides reliable, always-on, broadband services using a small self-installable wireless modem that does not require users to download software or to configure their laptop or desktop computers. The “user-friendly” wireless modem operates indoors or outdoors, from anywhere within Access Telecom’s wide area network (WAN), creating a new freedom for subscribers to connect to the Internet from multiple locations. It can be used at the office, at home, at school, in a café, in a hotel, at the airport -- anywhere within Access Telecom’s coverage area. The XSTREAM NLOS service provides reliable competitively priced broadband solutions to meet the demands and requirements of today’s businesses and residential communities.

“This is the first affordable-for-all and truly superior quality broadband solution for Bangladesh,” said Zain Omar, Chief Executive Officer for Access Telecom (BD) Ltd. “But the real breakthrough today is that this world-class, user-friendly broadband technology makes it possible to connect customers within minutes of the customer requesting connectivity from anywhere within the coverage area, thus providing instant broadband service when you need it, where you need it, at an affordable cost,” Omar added.
