Telenor Myanmar switched on its network of 13 towers in Kayah State yesterday, as the telco works toward expanding across the country.
Currently, the Norwegian firm’s Kayah State towers are clustered around its largest city Loikaw, but Telenor Myanmar CEO Petter Furberg said it is still early days for local coverage.
“We are still in a very early stage of our rollout in Kayah, but we assure customers that we will continue investing in both sites and fiber solutions to deliver a solid internet and voice coverage in the coming months,” he said in a press release.
Telenor now has 2300 sites in its network, with over 50 percent population coverage, according to a press release. It plans to roll out between 3000 and 4000 towers by the end of the year.
It had previously launched in the Shan State city of Taunggyi last month. The firm is now in Mandalay, Yangon, Sagain, Bago, Magwe and Ayeyarwady Regions, and Kayin, Mon, Kachin and Shan States, as well as Nay Pyi Taw.
