Internet provider Redlink says it has big plans to expand its business as soon as the laws allow private companies to offer online access independent of state-run Yadanarpon Teleport.
“Now, Redlink Company is giving service [in a joint venture] with Yadanarpon Teleport,” said U Thein Than Toe, the company’s vice chairman and co-founder in a workshop at October 4.
He said, “We will expand our current service, and we will try to get an ISP [Internet Service Provider] licence at the same time.”
Once granted an ISP licence, Redlink said, it will build more towers in the three cities it already
services –Yangon, Mandalay and Bagan.The company plans to have over 50 towers total by the end of 2013, said U Myo Myint Nyunt, assistant general manager of sales and marketing.
U Myo Myin Nyunt said the extra towers will help bring better signals in crowded urban spaces where signals are often blocked by buildings.
“After we have got an ISP license and the law [allowing private internet providers] has been enacted, we will offer Wi-Fi service in public areas such as parks, shopping centres, Yangon University, the University of Foreign Languages, the University of Medicine … the railway station and the airport,” U Myo Myint Nyunt said.
Redlink also announced plans to expand its service to other cities in the future.
