Telenor to launch Myanmar 3G

- +

Telenor Group, the major shareholder of Thailand's Total Access Communication (DTAC), plans to introduce commercial third-generation (3G) mobile service in Myanmar next year after winning a licence in a highly competitive tender. 

The Norwegian firm aims to complete the nationwide roll-out of its 2G and 3G network using high-speed packet access (HSPA) technology within five years under an undisclosed investment.

Telenor will also install 4G-ready base stations using long-term evolution technology for Myanmar to match the sophistication of leading networks worldwide, said Glenn Mandelid, communications director of Telenor Asia.
