Thursday 24 July 2014 | 14:02 CET | News
Qatar-based operator Ooredoo confirmed it will launch its new mobile network in Myanmar in the third quarter, in Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon. The company said it had already tested cross-network calls with the other new operator Telenor, and agreed a programme with Samsung to introduce affordable handsets in the market. Over 1,000 km of fibre have been laid for the backbone network, and towers roll-out is progressing according to schedule, with all sites supporting co-location. Ooredoo also secured a number of distribution agreements to prepare for the launch.
