(Yangon, 6 January 2017) – AYA Bank is the latest partner announced by MPT to offer a SIM registration service. There will be 100 branches around Myanmar at which customers can register, starting from 12 January, 2017.
According to the PTD’s announcement on 1 August, 2016 all SIM cards must be registered by 31 March 2017. MPT has a number of collaboration with private banks such including KBZ Bank and CB Bank plus a wide range of other channels. AYA Bank branches will be added to the list of locations at which people can register their SIM cards by the deadline.
MPT hopes that this will make registering SIM cards an easy experience and offers this service alongside the other channels through which people can follow the process such as online, at POS, branded stores and MPT special events across the country.
