EDIT: 29/10/2016 It looks like Ooredoo does not judge necessary to update its promotions on its corporate website. After a visit to Ooredoo shop, we realized it does have an ongoing promotion for Internet and the following post has been updated with this new information.
For this first benchmark, we compared the mobile Internet plans of the three operators: Ooredoo, Telenor and MPT.
All the operators operate a 3G network. Telenor and Ooredoo launched 4G in 2016 but the technology is only partially available.
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.
This price comparison takes into account the respective promotions of the operators. The three operators are basically aligned, proposing the same Internet plans and the same promotion (data volume is doubled on each monthly plan).
NB: This information has been collected from non-official (social networks, word to mouth) and official sources (official communication channels and mistery shopper). May some of the above information be false or incomplete, we encourage every service provider to contact us. Our objective is not to promote one Internet service provider against the others but to provide the most accurate and extensive source of information on the Internet market in Myanmar.
