Ooredoo Launches 3G in Myanmar

Ooredoo has officially launched its mobile services in Myanmar. Ooredoo rolled out a new network using UMTS900 technology, which offers customers in Myanmar a 3G service. The company has launched in Myanmar’s three major cities and surrounding regions, initially covering 68 cities and towns and 7.8 million people. The network will rapidly extend beyond these cities to include 25 million people by the end of the year. Ooredoo is the first commercial operator to launch in the country since the government issued new licences last year. Telenor is expected to also launch services by September.
