ISPAB threatens to suspend internet services over VAT


The Internet Service Providers Association of Bangladesh has threatened to suspend its services across the country if the double-layer value added tax imposed on the sector is not revised.
The ISPAB issued the threat from a virtual media briefing on Saturday amid the coronavirus pandemic that made people more dependent on internet services.
“We have decided to suspend internet services across the country on a limited scale if the VAT-related complications are not solved,” ISPAB President MA Hakim said.
“We will suspend the services for one or two hours at a certain time every week. The shutdown will be effective soon.”
