Shaniur: Well, after completing Bachelor of Engineering (Communication) in RMIT University Australia, I joined RMIT University and later on Monash University, Clayton Campus. I came back to do something for my country and in 2008, we got license to operate Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). We started a new era of telecom in Bangladesh with Peoples Tel. We had promising service with own soft switching system ever in country. Unfortunately we faced an odd situation from the government in 2010, at the growing moments of the services and he had to shut it down. At the same year, I got a proposal from Malaysia to set a software and telecom service there and I just grabbed that opportunity.
