[:en](Yangon, 27 May 2016) Myanma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT), the first and leading telecommunications operator in Myanmar, now with over 20 million users. For this achievement, MPT is offering their customers the opportunity to personalize their phone’s ring back tone at a special new rate when they subscribe to MPT’s ‘Caller Ring Back Tone’ (CRBT) service.
CRBT is that ringing sound the callers will hear while the caller is waiting for the receiver to pick up the call. Now with thousands of songs available to choose from with even more being added on each week, the CRBT service offers a more personalized multimedia experience for mobile users.
From June 1st, MPT GSM and WCDMA users can now select a monthly price plan of Ks.1,000 /month. The monthly fee is a big improvement against MPT’s previous rate of Ks 2,000 per month, with each downloaded song costing about Ks.300/song/month (These rates are applicable for 5% commercial tax); making it usage-based rather than charging a flat-rate. Those wanting to avail of the CRBT service can also search for their preferred songs and hear a preview by going to the website (http://lotayamm.com), which MPT launched in March this year. Users can subscribe to this CRBT Service by sending SMS “REG” to 7979 from 1st June onwards.
Users can choose a range of songs from top local artists such as Iren Myo Gyi, Zin Mar Myint, Ni Ni Khin Zaw, Wine Su Khaing Thein, Wunna, Shwe Htoo, Nine One and Gae Gae as well as international cover songs. However, those who are already subscribed to the 1772, 1773 service that want to avail of the new rate will need to unsubscribe first. MPT’s CRBT users should keep their eyes open as MPT will roll out promotions in the near future.
Mr. Koichi Kawase, Chief Commercial Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations said: “There is an increasing demand for CRBT services not only in the youth segment, but also in other segments. By providing a larger range of songs at a new attractive price, we believe it will meet the needs of our customer and more customers will be using our CRBT service”.[:]
