BTRC lifts restrictions to limit Grameenphone's significant market power

Friday 29 March 2019 | 08:04 CET | News
Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has lifted the restrictions imposed on Grameenphone for becoming an operator with significant market power (SMP). The BTRC, however, has given the operator 15 days to defend itself on what it should do and what it should avoid as an SMP, BDNews24 reports, citing a letter sent to Grameenphone. The BTRC declared Grameenphone an SMP on 10 February, and slapped some restrictions on the operator. These restrictions also cover the operator's advertisement campaigns. Grameenphone was notified about the restrictions on 18 February.
