Update : 21 Oct 2018, 12:24 AM

Just four days since the launch of the new Grameenphone "013" number series, more than 100,000 customers have already opted for the connection.  

The operator launched the new number series on October 14, of this year as it had exhausted almost all of its original "017" series numbers, said a press release.

Deputy CEO and CMO of Grameenphone Yasir Azman said that they are glad to see the overwhelming demand for "013" number series. 

"This is another testament of peoples’ trust in Grameenphone’s superior network when the industry is going through intense competition," said Yasir, adding that the company will continue maintain their high standard network.

He welcomed customers to join in the Grameenphone and subscribe to its new number series.  

013 connections are available across the country for Tk100 per connection. 

By recharging Tk34 for the first-time, customers will get 1paisa/second call rate for 30 days along with 1 GB free data with 7 days validity.   They will also be able to buy 1 GB data for Tk9 once in a month in the next 9 months.

With "013" connections, customers will be able to enjoy the same portfolio of products and services, and the same network services that customers of "017" currently enjoy. New SIM cards with "013" numbers will be available at all SIM selling outlets, just like the “017” numbers and at the same price

Grameenphone started its journey on March 26, 1997 with "017" number series when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made the first call to Laily Begum, living in the rural outskirts of Dhaka city. Since then the company has been leading the telecom industry of the country and is currently serving 71 million customers, making it one of the top 20 mobile operators in the world in subscriber numbers. 

The lack of further "017" new numbers compelled the company to rely on recycled numbers to serve customers who want to enjoy the superior network and service of Grameenphone. 

Upon request of the company, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission initially allocated 20 million numbers for the "013" series.
