This post is for Bangladeshi internet users. Anybody reading this article from outside of Bangladesh may not be directly benefited, but will get some idea about the internet scenario of the country. Here we talk about Teletalk internet and its services to the countrymen.
Teletalk’s network strength compared to other operators
Everyone knows that Teletalk is the government owned mobile phone based telecom company in Bangladesh. It offers various internet packages at cheap rate. But people do not tend to use its services based on the claim that Teletalk’s network strength is poor. This might be true in some remote areas of Bangladesh where almost all networks are poor in strength. But one thing is for sure: Teletalk has a very good network strength in urban areas of Bangladesh. So people living in cities and towns should use Teletalk’s services, whether they like the government or not. There is no point in giving away the foreign companies likes grameenphone and banglalink a huge sum of revenue each year.
My experience regarding Teletalk internet
I have been using Teletalk internet for quite a long time now. The speed is superb and the network is strong in where I mostly live (urban areas). I never had to face problems during calls, all of the calls were with crystal-clear sound. I also got satisfactory network coverage in remote areas where so called strong networks like grameenphone often failed. So I have been stuck with Teletalk for an obviously long time and am happy about it.
An accident taught me some nice lessons
Recently I lost my Teletalk sim, so couldn’t use internet for a few days. Then I took a grameenphone internet package of 4GB for 179BDT. But it was absolutely bogus. Although the internet speed was ok, but the package just ran away like gust of wind. I am sure that some manipulation exists here. They must be offering only 1GB data in the guise of 4GB. I experienced the same thing in Airtel internet. Out of fear for the same experience, I never dared to use Robi internet.
So I finally got to realize that it’s Teletalk internet that I have to stick to. But the last few days all Teletalk customer care centers have been closed on the occasion of Eid-ul Azha. So I could not replace my sim. At last I decided to buy a new teletalk sim. And this one comes with a lot of offers. Till 10 September I get 10GB data on every 97 taka recharge (validity 10 days) and 5GB data on each 65 taka recharge (validity 5 days). Not only that I get 1GB for every 11 taka recharge. This particular offer is valid for the first month after buying the sim.
Now about my wonderful plan
So I planned something evil(!). Instead of paying 1270 taka each month for 25GB Teletalk internet, I would rather buy 1 Teletalk sim each month and enjoy 40GB data for only 440 taka. When I will have crossed my quota of buying 5 Teletalk sims, I will have my family members buy those sims. They will definitely let me use their sim for at least one month, after that I will hand over the sim to the rightful owner. That’s my plan. I thought you should know about this wonderful opportunity and grab it. Let me know what you think about it in comments.
