MPT launches FTTH in Yangon

Myanmar’s MPT has announced the launch of FTTH services in parts of the nation’s largest city Yangon.

The new service offers speeds of 5Mbps for 69,000 kyat ($50.64) per month, or 10Mbps for 109,000 kyat per month.

The operator is offering the service on a 12 month contract and charging an installation fee of 150,000 kyat, rising to 200,000 kyat after a promotional period ends.

MPT has deployed the services in parts of downtown Yangon, and plans to expand the rollout to other areas of Yangon and to Mandalay early next year and to other major cities across the nation throughout that year.

“We are pleased to offer customers a truly enriching internet experience in their homes at greater value,” MPT chief commercial officer Reizo Umeda said.

“The new fiber-based service will provide fast and reliable connectivity to online services, from web browsing, social media, streaming videos, gaming as well as those that require higher bandwidth capacity for connecting multiple devices simultaneously. Also as thanks to our valued customers, we are launching this service with an attractive introductory installation price, which we hope residents will take advantage of.”

MPT entered a partnership with Japan’s KDDI and Sumitomo for both its fixed and mobile operations as part of the 2014 liberalization of Myanmar’s telecoms sector.
