Criticism[edit]

In the "Criticism" section, there's this sentence: "In January 2008, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has filed a case against GP's two former CEO's and other officials for involvement in illegal VoIP business.[27]" The references cited is a news article on BdNews24.com, linked here - http://www.bdnews24.com/details.php?cid=2&id=37708 - which has absolutely no relation to that sentence. The article linked discusses violent disruptions to voting for the Bangladesh Chhatra League president. Perhaps the wrong link was entered. --'Kash (talk) 12:26, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Rebranding to Telenor[edit]

Do they plan to rebrand operator's name to Telenor like recently it was done in Denmark? --Dima1 (talk) 11:00, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

No, they don't have any such plans for they consider Grameenphone has a rich history. @Dima1 - SAMI  talk

Fraud Schemes by Grameenphone[edit]

  • Grameenphone makes money with many bad tricks to its users which falls into Fraud Scehmes. Recently they offered an Internet package titled P6 that costs only 350/- BDT for 1 GB/month use. But after one month, the package is switched to it's P1 package automatically and starts deducting money at a huge rate from the balance.
  • Last year Grameenphone offered a promotional rate of 0.25 BDT/min to its subscribers for FnF numbers, but suddenly they changed to 0.49 BDT/min without any notice. Subscribers had to notice it after they lost a lot of money.
  • This company offered another promotional campaign for the last few months of call rate 0.49 BDT/min to any GP-GP number with a lots of publicity by flooding the media but this month they increased the rate to 0.99 BDT/min with very few adverts at the media that will not be noticed by most of its subscribers and they would discover this after loosing a lot of their valuable money.

The company should be sued for doing these fraud activities to its subscribers.--Gphealer (talk) 04:40, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Court case[edit]

Wasn't there an ugly court case between Yunus and Telenor during the takeover of Grameenphone, regarding the compensation? --84.215.125.229 (talk) 23:25, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
