Bangladesh: Some Unique Services from the Telcos

There are currently six(6) mobile operators in Bangladesh. Among them GrameenPhone, AKTEL, Banglalink, Warid and Teletalk are the GSM operator. Whereas CityCell is the only one CDMA operator in Bangladesh. So far GSM is more popular than CDMA here. I think this is because of characterstics of Bangladeshi people. We generally like to change handsets frequently. Or I may say that we like to have more handset options in which sector GSM technology is found great. Anyway today I will just try to focus on some of the Value Added Services (VAS) from different operators here which I think gave some sort of uniqueness to them...

Regulatory Changes Can Increase Service Penetration

Every country has a Telecom Regulatory body which decides upon the strategic points to enhance the telecom penetration in their country. Most of time this regulatory body seems like the police force to the telecom operators. Because most of the regulations they prepare are mostly related to telecom business. Well that is OK though, but I think there can be taken some sort of regulation clauses which will deal with subscriber comfort and hence will increase the service penetration...
