Ooredoo Launches 3G Services in Myanmar

Comments Off on Ooredoo Launches 3G Services in Myanmar 96

Ooredoo Myanmar has officially launched mobile services, after switching on its UMTS900 3G network earlier this month.

The launch has drawn crowds of eager customers, but also some criticism over Ooredoo’s data rates.
The operator launched services on Friday in Myanmar’s three major cities, as well as 68 surrounding cities and towns.
At launch, the network covers 7.8 million people, and Ooredoo aims to increase this to 25 million by the end of the year.

Oordoo switched on its network on August 3. The company had been offering voice and mobile data services for free in Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon as a promotion up until the commercial launch.
Ooredoo is selling top-up vouchers at 30,000 outlets and 6,500 dealers are selling the operator’s SIMs, the company said.

Friday’s launch attracted round-the-block queues and some dealers ran out of their allocation of SIM cards – expected to last a month – in two days, the Wall Street Journal reported. Original post at Telecomasia/Dylan Bushell-Embling
