Telenor Myanmar to launch by September

Wednesday 23 July 2014 | 17:31 CET | News
Telenor said it plans to launch services in Myanmar in the current quarter. The first call on its new network there was made in April and a friendly user test was launched in June. The company invested NOK 275 million in the country in the second quarter in preparation for the launch and incurred a NOK 86 million operating loss there. Opex and capex are expected to increase as the operation will ramp up its marketing activities and continue network expansion, Telenor said. The operator is one of two companies licensed last year to build new mobile networks in the country.
