Grameenphone (GP) on Tuesday said that it will continues to work with Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) to establish a best practice of significant market power (SMP) framework.
The company reserves its rights, it has taken necessary steps to implement the two SMP impositions effective from July 1, said a press release from GP.
BTRC has imposed two impositions relating to mobile number portability (MNP) and approval of products and services on Grameenphone under the SMP Regulations.
Grameenphone continues to disagree with the two impositions, they are not promoting customer benefits and there is a lack of requisite evidence of market failure, GP said.
Grameenphone is implementing the two SMP impositions under protest, the service provider said.

However, the company remains hopeful that the prevailing gap in understanding between GP and BTRC can be resolved through constructive and meaningful dialogue.
As a part of this process Grameenphone intends to withdraw the writ petition that was filed on June 28, 2020.
The petition was filed challenging a directive of BTRC on June 21, alongside two restrictions were imposed under significant market power (SMP) guidelines.
