Mobile phone operator Grameenphone, who had initially set a minimum recharge limit of Tk30 for prepaid customers, has withdrawn from that decision for the time being.

As before, minimum Tk20 can be recharged.

Grameenphone's Head of Communications Sharfuddin Ahmed Chowdhury told the media on Wednesday: "We are not implementing the minimum recharge amount of Tk30 now. Discussion will be held with the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) in this regard. We will take further decisions in the light of those discussions.”

On Tuesday, Grameenphone's MyGP app showed a message around noon, saying that from Wednesday, the minimum recharge amount will be Tk30. However, by evening, the message was no longer visible on the app.

Grameenphone was criticized on social media after making the minimum recharge amount to Tk30.

In early July 2022, Grameenphone increased its minimum recharge limit from Tk10 to Tk20. Soon after their decision, two other operators – Robi and Banglalink also increased their minimum recharge limit to Tk20 in the same month.

According to the latest estimates of BTRC, the number of mobile subscribers in the country is more than 190 million. Among them, Grameenphone has more than 82.1 million customers, Robi has more than 58.6 million customers, Banglalink has more than 43.3 million customers and Teletalk has more than 6.4 million customers.
