Ooredoo in Myanmar

OOREDOO, the mobile telecom operator bringing high definition (HD) voice calls and fast Internet for all in Myanmar, has announced the availability of its crystal clear voice calls and fast Internet services in three of Myanmar’s major cities, Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon, as part of final preparations for commercial launch later this month. 

Initially ooredoo will provide a bundle of life-enriching services free of charge in a kick off promotion.  This is the first time that telecommunications services have been so readily accessible for the nation’s people.

In another first not only for Myanmar, but globally, ooredoo is rolling out a next generation, purely UMTS900 network, with some of the most advanced 3G technology in the world, which will also future-proof the network being built.  The benefits of this technology include a stronger signal, crystal clear sound and fast internet.  

As ooredoo works towards a commercial launch, coverage will rapidly extend beyond these three main cities to include 68 cities and towns by Aug.15, 2014. The company is quickly striving to connect as many people as possible, enabling them to experience life-enriching and affordable services first-hand. 

To participate customers need to simply register and purchase a SIM card for $1.50 (1,500 kyats). SIM cards are readily available from one of ooredoo’s 6,500 dealers.

Dr Nasser Marafih, Group CEO, ooredoo said: “During the past year ooredoo has set out to break down all the barriers that have limited the Myanmar people’s access to the best quality voice and fastest internet experience. Our aim is to support Myanmar’s people and help them achieve their vast potential.”
