Telenor 4G service is available in Naypyidaw whereas Ooredoo 4G is available in Yangon, Mandalay, Naypyidaw and Bagan.
MPT has just launched 4G LTE in specific locations in Yangon in October this year.

For our first benchmark, we have compared the residential Internet plans of ten Internet service providers in Myanmar. Volume-based Internet plans are not included in this benchmark and will be reviewed separately. Internet service providers… Read More »Residential Unlimited Internet Plans in Myanmar – October 2016
