Naypyitaw, Myanmar – 1st September, 2014 – MPT, the biggest telecom operator in Myanmar, has recently partnered with leading Japanese telecom operator KDDI and global conglomerate Sumitomo. As part of its commitment to increase telecom penetration in the country, MPT is planning to push over 5 million SIM cards by the end of the year. From September onwards, SIM cards will be available for sale at thousands of retail points covering all states and regions across the country, at the recommended price of 1,500 MMK. With this new and more modern distribution system, MPT is replacing the former lottery channel and making access to mobile phone communications easier for the public. Furthermore, as part of the efforts to make mobile services more accessible for everyone, MPT will soon introduce lower denomination top-up cards.

To celebrate this exciting news, MPT is offering a special promotion for GSM/WCDMA customers who top up from September 4th until September 12th . These customers will get 20% bonus credit for every 5000 Kyat denomination top-up and 30% bonus credit for every top-up of 10,000 Kyat and above. Thus, the more the customers top-up, the more bonus they get.

Together with its action to develop nationwide network coverage, MPT is committed towards making mobile services more accessible for all the people of Myanmar.
