Ooredoo expanding 4G network in Myanmar with ZTE and Nokia

Ooredoo Myanmar is significantly expanding its network and infrastructure to offer the fastest and widest 4G network in the country.

By the end of 2017, more than 15 million customers across 200 towns will be able to enjoy superfast 4G speeds. The upgraded Ooredoo 4G Pro network has been designed to offer the fastest browsing speeds in Myanmar with speeds of up to 500 Mbps, which is three times faster than the current mobile internet speed offered by the existing 4G networks.

With this upgrade, Ooredoo customers will be able 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.

Vikram Sinha, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar said: “Our goal is to enable our customers to enjoy the internet more by offering them higher speeds and enhancing their daily data experience. Our continuous investments in the network bring us closer to making the highest theoretical speeds a daily reality to our customers and put Ooredoo Myanmar on an evolutionary path to 5G.”

To achieve this upgrade in a timely manner, Ooredoo has partnered with two leading network technology providers – Nokia and ZTE - which have significant expertise to ensure on-time rollout and optimal performance to place Ooredoo at the forefront of network technology in Myanmar.
