(Yangon, 14th November 2018) This month, Myanmar’s first and leading telecommunications operator, MPT announced that it has expanded its nationwide high-speed LTE+ network coverage to 256 townships, following the recent addition of 40 more townships around the country.
“We are pleased to announce that we have surpassed the 250-township mark this month, which is a huge jump from our update last month of just over 200 townships covered at the start of October. Now many more Myanmar mobile users from the 40 additional townships can experience the high speeds of our 4×4 MIMO-powered 4G LTE+ service as they connect online with friends and family over social media, for work, downloads and uploads or as they stream entertainment content on their mobile devices. Our team has been working diligently to connect even more communities here to our cutting-edge network and this rapid expansion demonstrates MPT’s commitment to enriching the lives of Myanmar’s people through enhanced telecommunications services,” said Mr. Reizo Umeda, Chief Commercial Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.
Following this announcement, MPT is continuing the rapid pace of deployment of its LTE+ network, and is on-course to cover more than 300 townships in the country by the end of 2018. The list of 40 newly-added townships are as below:
