Grameenphone internet, not a pleasant story

For more than 6 years (from 2006), I'm closely following gpinternet. More than 80% of mobile bill is spent on internet data plan. But unfortunately still it's not a pleasant experience to use net via GP.

My internet using on mobile started with Siemens AX72, later continued with Siemens C72 and Nokia N72. I've got my first real test of mobile internet with Nokia N72 on Internet P3 on Prepaid, which actually started as a night time monthly unlimited package but later continued as 24hour unlimited data package for [email protected] That was really very tasteful. But soon grameenphone raised internet cost [email protected] This is quite costly. Still my internet addiction keeps me buying this [email protected] 2times each month. Though the price is high, service nothing that you can enjoy a lot. Download Speed is not more than 20Kb at most places. I've even brought a GP internet modem at 4000tk, but after using it for few days, I was able to understand that my phone even connected by bluetooth act as a better modem than that Hawaii company made GP branded overpaid modem.

Recently, I was looking why my this website is not displaying by GP internet, on search of cause I've just founded that GP is blocking ghs.google.com which is a google domain parking site. I really wonder why staffs and plan makers of Grameenphone is so much careless about their service and think too much about their business. They are the largest telecom company in Bangladesh. Even their little price slash, little better service could open new door of opportunity for future.

GP should understand Internet is everyone's right. It should feel for it, protect it and pass it next generation with better service.
