Acting chairman of BTRC Jahurul Haque said, From now on there is no off net and on net facility to speak on mobile phones. The minimum limit for call rate is 45 paisa. The maximum limit is 2 taka So the minimum price for calling on the same operator (on-net) was 25 paisa and the minimum price for calling the other operator (off-net) was 60 paisa.
If it was not done, small operators would have been affected in market competition. According to the new call rate, mobile phone operators will now set new prices for customers
