Together with its Japanese partners KDDI and Sumitomo Corporation, MPT, Myanmar’s largest telecom operator with the widest coverage, is currently investing heavily in network capacity expansion to provide better service to its customers.
On November 6th, MPT has started its network improvement plan by expanding capacity of congested 3G sites in Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw. Capacity of those sites is now about 50% higher than before November 6th.
As a consequence, MPT customers in Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw will experience better voice connectivity. Even in usually congested areas and during peak hours, customers will experience much better quality of service.
MPT will further increase capacity and coverage in nationwide: as a first phase of the project, by the end of March 2015, the number of 3G sites will be doubled. Especially in Yangon area, total 3G network capacity will be almost tripled. Also, new 3G network technology is under testing to provide better data service.
MPT has undergone a lot of positive changes recently, with a new distribution system, a new logo and now an improved network capacity. More improvements will be announced soon –stay tuned!
