  • Churn Rule : A subscriber is considered churned (removed from the subscriber base) if he exceeds the 90 days from the end of the validity period without recharging. It is worth noting that the validity period is a function of the scratch denomination. In cases where scratch cards have open validity, the subscriber is considered churned in case he has not made a single billable event in the last 90 days (i.e. outgoing or incoming call or sms, wap session). Open cards validity is applied for GTA, Mobilink and banglalink so far.

  • Minutes of Usage ("MOU"): Average airtime minutes per customer per month.  This includes billable national and international outgoing traffic originated by customers (on-net, to land line & to other operators). Also, this includes incoming traffic to customers from landline or other operators.
