DOHA: Ooredoo Group announced yesterday that Ooredoo Myanmar has successfully rolled-out 4G+ across 200 towns in Myanmar, as part of a major network and infrastructure project set to offer the widest and fastest 4G network in the country.
Ooredoo Myanmar is the first operator to offer a superior 4G network in Myanmar, which is now available to more than 15 million customers, representing two-thirds of Myanmar’s towns.
This important milestone significantly enhances users’ data experience and allows them to enjoy the Internet even more with browsing speeds of up to 500 Mbps, which is three times faster than the previous mobile Internet speed.
Sheikh Saud bin Nasser Al Thani, Group Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo, said: “We are on a mission to enable customers across our footprint to access and enjoy the Internet, and enhance their digital experience.
Through our network modernisation programme, we have successfully brought 4G+ services to our customers in Myanmar, allowing individuals and businesses to take advantage of the host of new opportunities that faster Internet can bring them.”
Vikram Sinha, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar said: “We are proud to have delivered this upgrade to over 200 townships in such a short amount of time, making the fastest speeds available a daily reality for our customers. We have big plans for 2018 and are working hard for network upgrade. We want our customers to be able to enjoy the best of the internet in a way that is personal and unique to them.”
With this upgrade, Ooredoo moves to the forefront of network technology in Myanmar, enabling customers to take advantage of the extra speeds and smooth browsing to stay in touch with their loved ones, enjoy live broadcasting, stream their favourite music, watch on-demand ultra HD videos and take part in real-time gaming.
