Ooredoo Myanmar sees 12 million customers by mid-September

Reading Time: 1 minute

XJDPF71HCNMyanmar Ooredoo, the first foreign mobile service provider in the country, aims for its 3G network to cover 12.3 million users by September 15, just one month after its official debut, the company says.

Myint Zaw, the company’s national sales director, said the network had already covered 9 million people at the end of August. “We are expanding our network in Yangon … and solving technical glitches as fast as possible,” he added.

Some users have complained that Ooredoo services are poor and others say they cannot buy its SIM cards in some areas of Yangon.

The company launched in Mandalay, Yangon and Naypyitaw, but its service has been extended to Mandalay’s Kyaukse Township and in Monywa Township of Sagaing Region, the company said.

Customers have complained that although Ooredoo charges only 35 kyat per minute per call, this rate applies even if the call lasts for just a few seconds.

The company’s CEO, Ross Cormack, suggested that it had underestimated demand for its service. “We heard that some places in Yangon downtown areas are having poor services because there are too many customers using our network,” he said. Cormack added the company’s technicians were solving these problems as it expands the network and ensures high-quality service at the same time.
