Mobile Phone Users In Bangladesh Protest High Prices

Want to know just how important mobile phone communications are becoming around the world? You know it’s beyond being just a technology when there’s a social movement around lowering prices. Mobile phone users in Bangladesh are demonstrating to protest the high fees. They should at least be happy they have phone service, unlike in Nepal, where many had to go for weeks without phone service due to political strife. Of course, Bangladesh is also the country where you can wait 27 years for a landline, so maybe the mobile phone users don’t have as much to complain about.
