Ooredoo rolls out to Mon State

Ooredoo Myanmar has extended their 3G network to more of Myanmar, including townships in Mon State.

The Qatar-based telco expanded 3G service to six townships in Mon State: Pound, Mudon, Belin, Mawlamyine, Kyaik Hto, and Thaton. It will roll out to another four townships in the area soon, the company said.

The firm also plans to start covering Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda this year.

Mon State chief minister U Ohn Myint said in a statement that he welcomed the telco to the area.

“If there is better telecommunications systems there will be better business and social status,” he said.

Ooredoo, like its fellow foreign competitor Telenor, has made almost total coverage of Myanmar its aim.

“If we expand our network quickly, I think that Ooredoo Myanmar will deliver communication services to 97 percent of the population in five years,” said Daw Thiri Kyar Nyo, Ooredoo Myanmar senior PR manager.

The firm also announced last week it would introduce its mobile money service “very soon”.
