GrameenPhone crosses 5 million subscribers mark

GrameenPhone Limited (GP), the country’s largest mobile phone operator, recently crossed the landmark of 5 million subscribers.

The subscriber base of the company has become more than a double in the first 10 months of the current year.

Started the year with nearly 2.4 million subscribers, GrameenPhone reached the 3 million subscribers landmark in March and 4 million in September.

The Eid sales campaign in October received a very good response. Both the prepaid — Easy, Easy Gold and djuice — and post-paid packages were offered at very attractive prices during the campaign.

'This is a remarkable achievement as we had only 4 million users in September,' the GrameenPhone managing director, Erik Aas, said in a statement.

He said all their customers had appreciated the tariff reductions from early October, and combined with the successful Eid campaign they had seen a huge demand for all the GP products.

GrameenPhone has built the largest network with the widest coverage — 400 upzilas in 61 districts — and holds 62 percent shares of the country’s mobile phone market.

Nearly 80 per cent of the country’s population has been brought under the coverage of the GrameenPhone network.
