It’s been almost a month that MNP service has been introduced in Bangladesh. We all predicted that there will be a huge strategic shift in our telecom industry. Being a consumer, we all were delighted by the news as it gives us the bargaining power. But for the companies? It was the announcement of a race, that one must win.
Now, those of you who still doesn’t know about MNP service, click here!
Let’s have a look- how the companies are doing in this early MNP phase:
- Referred Date: Till October 18,2018
- Source:Prothom Alo
- The total number of consumers applied for change: 47,072
Total Number: 26,817
Applied But Couldn’t Change
Total Number: 20,255
Seems like Robi is killing it and the market leader Grameenphone is having a tough time. So, can we reach to a conclusion- “Grameenphone is about to experience the hit?”
Not necessarily, though the percentage in every matrix is working against them but GP has 72 million active users! That’s a huge number. On the other hand, this MNP service is probably the last bet the competitors have against the market leader.
However, this shows the data of first 18 days only. The race has just started and its way far from the finish line. But this is getting interesting each day. So, let’s just sit tight and enjoy being a user. Because surely, it’s a great time to live in Bangladesh as a customer.
Let us know about your thoughts on why Robi is gaining so much and GP is losing its users in this early phase of MNP in Bangladesh!
