Telenor plans September launch

Norway-based telecommunications company Telenor is planning to launch its network in Myanmar in September, it announced in a June 3 news release.

Telenor says it will launch the network after building 1,000 mobile phone towers, and it plans to erect up to 400 a month until it has a total of 8,000.

Telenor’s 3G network will provide users with maximum internet speed of 4.6Mbps with speeds expected to slow to between 700kbps and 1Mbps at peak usage times, the release said.

It said Telenor would roll out a 2G network and planned to introduce a 4G LTE service.

Telenor Myanmar chief executive officer Petter Furberg said in February the company was preparing to sell up to 30 million SIM cards at K1,500 (about US$1.54) each.

Qatar-based telecommunications company Ooredoo said last month its SIM cards would go on sale from July.
