As content providers set foot in Myanmar, need for domestic hosting and exchange point capabilities is growing.
From a technical perspective, Iflix content is distributed via Akamai CDN.
Telenor and Yatanarpon Teleport already run a local Akamai CDN which can significantly improve the customer experience.
Ooredoo only hosts Google CDN and relies on its upstream providers in Singapore for Akamai distributed contents.
