On Monday, the four telecom operators -- Grameenphone, Teletalk, Robi, Banglalink -- had closed around 2,000 base transceiver stations after the BTRC issued a notice on the ban on Sunday.

The BTRC had said that the move was "for the sake of the country's security in the current circumstances".

The decision was taken by the government following a high-level meeting.
