He said, "Everything is going on and we hope officially we will make the demo by the beginning of August".

The company officials said they got the frequency from the BTRC for six months to operate the trail programme in the Dhaka region.

The company's managing director at its Dhaka office yesterday demonstrated one feature of 3G by making video calls within the trial network.
