The BTRC has asked the four private mobile companies to introduce 'ten-second-pulse policy'. This policy stipulates that the user has to pay per ten seconds instead of the existing per minute which would be introduced by respective service providers. At present, in most of the cases, the user has to pay a full minute bill although he has spoken for a few seconds. Implementation of this policy will be advantageous for the users in reducing unwarranted cost. In response to the ruling of BTRC, Banglalink and Grameen phone has perfunctorily introduced the policy. Their policy has a number of conditions. Moreover, ten-second-pulse has been given for specific numbers or for specific durations and not generally. The BTRC must supervise their policies for the greater convenience of the customers.
