A commendable decision
Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has recently asked all the mobile phone operators to switch to a 10-second pulse call rate. I highly appreciate this decision. 10-second pulse means if one talks for 16 seconds, the operator will charge him for 20 seconds and not for the whole 1 minute. This has made call costs significantly low. It was quite necessary because to make telecommunication accessible to all, the call cost must be low. Likewise, a reduction in the cost of mobile internet connections would be very commendable. With lower costs and increased usage of such technologies, Bangladesh can improve its ranking in the ICT Development Index.
