The High Court today stayed an official notification asking Citycell subscribers to switch to an alternative operator.
It also issued a ruling upon the government and Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) to explain why the public notification should not be declared illegal.
The BTRC issued the circular on August 17 asking the subscribers to take service from other mobile operators in two weeks. Citycell recently filed a petition challenging the legality of the circular.
The HC bench of Justice Zubayer Rahman Chowdhury and Justice Md Ataur Rahman Khan issued the order in response to the petition.
