Bangladesh Telecommunication Company Limited will give land phone connections to new clients free of cost marking the ‘Mujib Year’, the birth centenary of founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
‘The BTCL will give land phone connections to the applicants free of cost from today marking the “Mujib Year”. It will continue throughout the year of 2020,’ posts and telecommunications minister Mustafa Jabbar told journalists at his secretariat office in Dhaka on Tuesday.
Noting that the BTCL’s monthly line rent of Tk 180 had been withdrawn earlier, the minister said that the service users could talk over land phone to other land phone numbers for Tk 150 per month while calls from land phone to mobile telecom operators would cost Tk 0.52 per minute.
The number of land phone service users had increased after withdrawal of BTCL’s line rent, the minister said and hoped that it would continue to increase in future.
