Teletalk Bangladesh Limited (Bengali: টেলিটক) is the only state-owned GSM, 3G, LTE based mobile phone operator in Bangladesh that started operating in 2004.[1] As on September 31, 2019, Teletalk has a subscriber base of 4.527 million.[2]

History[edit]

Teletalk was formed as the only public mobile operator and fifth mobile operator in Bangladesh. It invested about 2 billion taka for spreading GSM network countrywide. In 2012 it inaugurated HSPA network. Then 16 December 2018 inaugurated its LTE network. It is the cheapest network of the country.

Numbering scheme[edit]

Teletalk uses the following numbering scheme for its subscribers:

+880 15 N1N2N3N4N5N6N7N8

Where, +880 is the ISD code for Bangladesh and is needed only in case of dialing from outside Bangladesh.

15 is the access code for Teletalk as allocated by the Government of Bangladesh. Omitting +880 will require using 0 in place of it instead to represent local call, hence 015 is the general access code.

N1N2N3N4N5N6N7N8 is the subscriber number.
