[:en](Yangon, Myanmar, 9 March 2016) – Myanma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT), the first and leading telecommunications operator in Myanmar, is launching at 7:00am on 11 March 2016 2 new promotions, providing exciting bonus to its over 19 million user base.
For their existing user base, MPT will turn back the clock once again with the re-launch of the “5 Minutes in 1 Hour” promotion –which was one of MPT’s most popular campaigns in 2015. –
For 60 minutes of a continuous call: the first 5 minutes are charged at the usual rate of 23 Ks/min, after which up to the remaining 55 minutes will be free of charge. Phone calls that last beyond 60 minutes will see the usage after 60 min charged back to the normal voice tariff (23Ks/min). The free talk time will only start after the 5th minute of the call, and a maximum of 55 minutes of free talk time will be given for each call.
“Once again, MPT are delighted to announce the return of this very popular promotion to our customers. Having witnessed how people engaged with this offer last year, MPT wants to offer the same benefits again to its customer base, by allowing them to pay just 115 Ks for an up to one-hour long phone conversation” said Mr. Takashi Nagashima, CEO of MPT-KSGM (KDDI Summit Global Myanmar Co. Ltd.) Joint Operations.
MPT’s Swe Thahar users will automatically be eligible for this promotion, without any additional action required. Base Tariff users who will want to participate will simplify need to subscribe to Swe Thahar (free of charge) by sending “SWE” by SMS to 1332 (“POSTSWE for postpaid subscribers). Promotion will expire on 16 April 2016.
The promotion is valid for calls to MPT numbers only (including fixed lines). It is available for both pre-paid and post-paid customers. However, this promotion is not applicable in the evenings from 6pm-10pm. Any call minutes falling between this time will be billed at the normal tariff of 23 Ks/min. There is no limit to the number of calls a user can make in each day to enjoy the free talk time.
Currently MPT has over 19 million active users most of them on the Swe Thahar plan. This package provides the best service to users with its affordable voice tariff of 23 Ks/min and high speed 3Gmobile Internet.
In addition to saving money on calls for existing users, MPT wants to welcome new customers on the MPT network, by rewarding new subscribers with a ‘Welcome Offer”.
The Welcome offer consists of an Activation Bonus, First Recharge Bonus and Staggered recharge bonuses.
The Activation Bonus will provide Ks.500 worth of credit instantly upon the activation of a new SIM card, which will be added directly to the main balance, to be used with no usage restrictions.
The Bonus on First Recharges will provide new customers with bonuses for four consecutive months when they top-up, allowing them to use more with a smaller budget!.
Only customers activating a MPT SIM from 11 March onwards will be eligible for this promotion.. To benefit from the Welcome offer, users must make a first top-up of at least 1,000 Ks within 30 days of activation in order to receive the first bonus. The higher the first recharge the higher the bonus obtained for the next 4 months.
To obtain all four bonuses, customers will need to top-up at least 1,000 Ks every 30 days after their First Recharge (up until 120 days after First Recharge). Please note that the Staggered Bonuses will be dependent on the First Recharge denomination and that each bonus can only be obtained once. The bonuses can then be used for On-Net calls, On-Net SMS and for PayAsYouGo data usage, where each bonus will have a validity of 30 days.
During this time, customers may check their staggered bonuses balance by sending “BAL” by SMS to “1331”.
All top-ups have to either be physical or by e-top up only and there will be only one “Welcome bonus set” per SIM Card. The promotion will run from 11 March 2016 until further notice from MPT.
Details on the staggered benefits on the first recharges are as follows.
