Aiming to fixing similar call rate for any operator to save subscribers’ cost, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) is working on new ‘Tariff Plan’. Subscribers are to pay additional charge on making calls from one operator to another.
On the other hand, Mobile Number Portability or MNP service is supposed to be introduced from next August. Under this service, seeing the mobile number it won’t be possible to know whom the call was made to or what operator the subscriber belongs to.
That’s the reason BTRC intends to implement similar call rate before introducing this service.
Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar said- They already provided a guideline to BTRC for call rate re-evaluation. Now, the final decision can be taken as soon as we get their proposal.
