Mobile operator Ooredoo has successfully made its first test call in Mandalay on its 3G network.
The call between two handsets using an Ooredoo SIM card was made in front of the media on May 19.
“We successfully tested a 3G mobile call in Mandalay. Although the construction of mobile networking in Mandalay hasn’t been accomplished so far, it will be finished very soon,” said Mr John Farhat, Ooredoo’s Chief Technology and Information officer.
“We have planned to erect hundreds of mobile towers in the coming years in Mandalay, but we need the help of regional government, enterprises and locals. The more help we get, the quicker we can do it,” he added.
Ooredoo successfully tested its network in Yangon in April, and also has plans to make test calls in Nay Pyi Taw.
