Grameenphone Ltd. (GP) is the largest mobile telecommunications operator in Bangladesh, with over 82 million subscribers as of December 2023. GP offers a range of voice, data, and messaging services, as well as OTT, pay TV services, and financial solutions to its subscribers. It is a joint venture between Telenor Group, a Norwegian multinational telecom company, and Grameen Telecom, a social enterprise affiliated with Grameen Bank, that aims to provide affordable and accessible telecommunication services to the rural poor of Bangladesh.
