Grameenphone, with the highest rate of call drops in Bangladesh, came up with this offer after the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission toughened rules on quality of service, including setting a limit for call drops at two per cent, with stiff fines for violations. Banglalink, the country’s second largest mobile operator, has followed suit with its ‘Minute back on call drop’ offer.
