Bangladesh’s largest mobile operator GrameenPhone (GP) has revealed that it hopes to reach the four million subscriber mark by the beginning of 2005. The operator, which claimed around two million subscribers in August this year, has pledged to invest around USD250 million in its GSM network in a bid to double the figure by next year. It currently controls around 60% of the Bangladeshi mobile market, with the remaining 40% shared among its rivals Telekom Malaysia International Bangladesh (AKTEL), Pacific Bangladesh Telecom Limited (CityCell) and Bangalink (formerly Sheba Telecom).
