Grameenphone Ltd. has reduced its tariff to 49 paisa per minute during day time, effective 22 March 2009. The day-time tariff is offered from 12 pm to 4 pm. All Grameenphone subscribers can now enjoy this lowest tariff to call any Grameenphone subscriber.
The 49 paisa per minute day-time tariff was initially offered as a promotion through February and March this year and now it has been converted into a permanent offer.
Further, the tariff from a Grameenphone connection to any operator has also been reduced to Tk. 1 per minute, between 12 am and 8 am. The special night time offer for Grameenphone subscribers has also been extended by an hour from 12 am-7am to 12 am-8 am. The tariff for the night time offer and on Grameenphone F&F (Friends & Family) numbers has also been set at 49 paisa per minute. F&F rates are applicable 24 hours a day.
With this adjustment in tariff rates, Grameenphone has consolidated its portfolio, ensuring an easier and balanced tariff structure and better service quality for its subscribers. It should be noted that tariff rates in Bangladesh are already one of the lowest in the world.
Grameenphone, with over 20 million subscribers, has the largest network covering almost 100% of the population and land area. The Grameenphone network is fully EDGE/GPRS enabled, allowing internet access from anywhere in the country.
