“The improving momentum from the beginning of 2021 has translated into growth in the second quarter as our subscription and traffic revenues grew by 8.5% from last year. Data usage per customer increased by 38.6 percent while there was a 7% YoY growth in data users,” said Jens Becker, CFO of Grameenphone.

“We ended the quarter with an 8.1% growth in total revenues with an EBITDA margin of 62%. Net profit after tax for the period stood at Tk851 crore with a 23.8% margin,” he added.
