Which is the Best ISP In Dhaka? Lots of Internet Service Providers like Amber IT, Link3, BracNet, and many more are in the market. Who is offering what?
Well, there are many considerations we have taken care of while selecting some of the best ISP in Dhaka. Because everyone is not covering the whole city. Many of them are divided into different parts of the city.
So, it was not actually an easy task for us to choose the best. We are not putting like top 10 isp in Bangladesh or something like that but we are offering a list of a few ISPs that are proven in their industry and has a huge number of positive feedback from their customer.
Choosing The Best ISP
Maybe one ISP is providing the best service in Mirpur while the other is leading in Dhanmondi. Maybe someone is best in Gulshan but doesn’t have coverage in Uttara. But the best part is few of the ISP have access all over the country. Most of them are corporate connection providers and costly as well.
Don’t need to worry we will be finding the best solution for you. And most importantly every one of them started providing home connections. So you will get the best service from the best ISP in Dhaka.

Before getting into the list you should know the real dirty game in the ISP industry. I am sure that you have already seen 20 Mbps, and 30 Mbps connection ads. Do they really provide this much?
Here is the twist. What they show is not real. What is real they don’t tell. But we will tell you no worries. Let’s know about two different types of internet connection/bandwidth.
Did you hear about shared lines and dedicated lines? Most of you must have heard this. If not then I will discuss but this is one of the most important factors to consider while choosing the best ISP in Dhaka.
A shared line is actually a limited amount of bandwidth shared with few users. Let’s say ISP has bought 100 MB speed (Bandwidth) from BTCL.
Now they have 100 users. So they will provide 20 Mbps per 20 users with one segment. So every 20 users will share a 20 Mbps line and they might get a limit of 3/5 Mbps. So, how that’s possible?
Well, you have heard about 40 Mbps 1000 taka this kind of package from different ISPs but that is not the actual 40 Mbps. Your base ISP line segment is under 40 Mbps but this might be shared with 15-20 users.
In off-peak hours (daytime) most of the users are outside of the home or in the office. During this time, the demand for bandwidth is less. So you might get more speed than usual. ISPs are playing the game here. They are offering 20-40 Mbps but in off-peak hours. In peak hours they are providing 4-5 Mbps.
I hope you have got an idea about the higher bandwidth and how they provide with low cost.
If no one is using you will get 30/40 Mbps speed as a commitment from ISP and if everyone is using then the speed will be shared.
On the other hand, dedicated lines provide actual speed. If they are saying 1 Mbps that means constant 1 Mbps. No more or less. This 1 Mbps is dedicated only for you. This type of connection cost is comparatively higher than the shared line cost but is worth of money.
Criteria To Choose The Best ISP
There are a few things that you should know and verify before purchasing a new broadband connection from your local ISP. These few things will help you to choose the best ISP in Dhaka.
- Get an idea about the no of users who will share the same line with you.
- Don’t fall into the trap of 20/30/40 Mbps ads. These are all shared.
- Ask your ISP how much minimum speed you will get during peak hours.
- Check the wire quality. If not optical fiber at least asks for Cat6 cable.
- Make sure latency is less. (under 5-6ms)
- A good FTP server can make your life easy. For movies, games or software check the quality of their FTP server. If you are happy then go for it.
- Some ISP provides IPTV. Though it’s illegal. Still having this for free is not bad at all.
- Check the BDIX, FB, and Youtube cache speed. Make sure these are 50 Mbps+
According to our experience, these are the key things you need to check before purchasing your broadband connection. And obviously, you can’t check more than that without using it.
What if they fool you by saying that all the things you have asked for are available with us. That’s the reason we are writing this article for you to choose the best ISP in the Dhaka city area. We have tested all those ISPs (even the smaller ones) and listed the top and the best ISP in Dhaka for you.
