Thousands of revellers are expected to celebrate their traditional entry into the new year donning distinct and colourful traditional clothes and engaging in cultural arts and performances along the river banks that straddle the beautiful festival grounds, praying for good weather, abundant crops and healthy domestic animals.

MPT is dedicated to moving Myanmar forwards with best-in-class connectivity all around the country.

It’s always been very important to us to help move Myanmar forwards through the power of technology and communication. Until now it has been very challenging for the people of this region to access the internet in any meaningful way, due to expense, cost and technological difficulties.” said Mr.Noboru Edagawa, Chief Technical Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.

He enthusiastically added: “This expansion is more than just another data point on the map. It’s the beginning of the promise of a better tomorrow to the people in this region who are now able to access online services to communicate better with friends and family, as well as finding out important information related to work and play. We hope the people of Nanyun come with us on this journey, and speak with their local MPT representatives to find out more.”
