ICT services are given the limelight and core importance in the current government’s “Digital Bangladesh” movement. The mission of this movement is to mainstream ICTs such that it is used as a tool to eradicate poverty, establish good governance, ensure social equity through quality education, ensure proper healthcare and law enforcement for all, and prepare the people for climate change. However, there is a lack of participation from the private sector, which makes the ICT services and venues financially and socially unviable. Hence, Grameenphone (and other telecommunication services) and the government has been actively seeking out common middle ground in their services in order to build a more connected nation. This might include special tariff included sim cards, high-speed broadband Internet connection or any other ICT related services. In order to reach the ultimate goal, citizens of the country need to be connected through a network of mobile communications.
