(Yangon, 22nd June 2020) – MPT, Myanmar’s first and leading telecommunication operator, today launched a special Data Carry Plus promotion for its customers, whereby purchasing eligible packages, customers can enjoy free night unlimited access to Facebook and Messenger between 11 PM and 7 AM. All other benefits of data carry plus package such as the carry-over feature continues without any changes along with added benefits of up to 400 GB Lucky Data and additional Data bonus on Fridays.
This service is available to all GSM/WCDMA prepaid and postpaid customers (Swe Thahar/Shal Pyaw/Shwe Zagar) who purchase Data Carry Plus packages starting from Ks. 999 up to Ks. 26,999. The validity of a Data Carry Plus package is 30 days and the carry-over period is 7 days.
Packages can be easily purchased from MPT4U App or by dialing *777#. Customers can purchase as many packages as they desire, as all the volume for data carry packages would be merged with validity reset to the latest purchase. Even if data from the Data Carry Plus package was consumed before expiry, customers can still enjoy Free Night Facebook Service with no additional charges until the expiration of their Free Night Facebook benefit.
Free Night Facebook service includes Facebook App (excluding links directing to external websites), Messenger (excluding voice and video calls), and access to Facebook via a browser. However, MPT customers can still have access to Messenger Voice and Video calls using existing data packages or at pay-as-you-go rate, whichever is applicable.
“Facebook is the most popular social network in Myanmar and we have been providing several services in collaboration with Facebook such as Facebook Flex, recently launched Facebook Discover Android App, and today, we are pleased to announce the launch Free Night Facebook for our valuable customers. We believe it is particularly important for customers can stay socially connected with friends, interact with family members, access news and information, upload and share your content, or join endless group chats without running out of your data allowance. This is commitment and mission of MPT and Facebook’s strong partnership forged throughout the years and we are dedicated to Keep Myanmar Connected, especially during these challenging times,” said Mr. Tetsunori Nagashima, CCO of MPT-KSGM JO.
As a responsible local telecom operator fully embracing and supporting digital transformation in Myanmar, MPT is persistently exploring new ways to bring fast, reliable internet to its customers across Myanmar. We believe this can create opportunities to share the knowledge that can strengthen both local communities and Myanmar’s economy.

MPT is also offering “5 Mins in 1 Hour” special promotion where customers can receive up to 55 mins of free voice-call time paying only for the first 5 minutes of every MPT to MPT call.
