July 5, 2015 – Yangon, Myanmar – Myanma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT), the first and leading telecommunications operator in Myanmar, announced lower voice tariff for its Swe Thahar plan and CDMA 450/800 to 23 Ks/min. In line with its core mission in helping “Moving Myanmar Forward,” this initiative enables MPT’s current and future customers to benefit from its affordable and reliable voice services.

Effective on July 8, 2015 at 00:00:01, voice calls on MPT’s Swe Thahar plan will be priced at 23 Ks/min, down from the previous tariff of 35 Ks/min. At the same time, voice tariff of CDMA 450/800 users will also be set to 23 Ks/min, instead of 50 Ks/min previously. These new tariffs apply automatically to all Swe Thahar and CDMA 450/800 customers.

“With these new affordable tariffs, we want to thank each and every one of our current users,” said U Khin Maung Tun, General Manager of MPT. “And we are sure many more individual customers and businesses will join us to enjoy many more voice calls throughout the country thanks to MPT’s most reliable mobile network and the largest reach in Myanmar, across urban and rural areas. As the leading telecommunications operator, it has always been our commitment to help Myanmar to connect,” added Mr Takashi Nagashima, CEO of MPT-KDDI-Sumitomo Joint Operations.

No additional subscription is required for current Swe Thahar users to benefit from the new tariff of 23 Ks/min, valid for on-net and off-net calls. For GSM/WCDMA customers to subscribe, they simply need to send “SWE” by SMS to 1332, without any charge. Prices of other services included in the Swe Thahar plan and the base tariff for GSM/WCDMA remain the same.
