Operators begin ten-second charging

17 Sep 2012

All of Bangladesh’s cellular network operators, except market leader GrameenPhone, implemented ten-second pulse call billing by restructuring their call packages from Saturday onwards, as per the directive of the telecoms regulator, reports the Financial Express. State-owned mobile operator Teletalk reportedly implemented the decision first, on 15 August, followed a month later by Airtel, Banglalink, Robi and CityCell. A spokesman for GrameenPhone told the Express on Saturday that his company needs more time to execute the decision due to technical problems, but has every intention to implement the measure, which is aimed at providing a fairer customer service.
