BTCL launches calling app Alaap

State-owned landphone operator Bangladesh Telecommunication Company Ltd has launched its over-the-top (OTT) calling application Alaap.

With the app, users can make calls to any mobile or landphone at 30 paisa per minute with a one-second pulse. The rate will be subject to 15 per cent value-added tax.

Once the app is installed, a user will own a new Alaap number along with their current mobile number. 

The services of Alaap began on March 26 and around 325,000 people have so far signed up on the app in the last 10 days to April 4.

Post and Telecom Minister Mustafa Jabbar inaugurated the app virtually in Dhaka on Sunday.
