Ooredoo, Digicel sign deal in Myanmar

DigicelQatar’s Ooredoo and Digicel Asian Holdings, a consortium of Jamaica-based Digicel Group, Yoma Strategic and First Myanmar Investment Co Ltd (FMI), said in a release on December 3 that they have signed an agreement with Ooredoo Myanmar to develop, construct and lease telecommunications towers in Myanmar.

Digicel’s Myanmar unit, Myanmar Tower Company, will be among the first telecommunications tower companies to begin construction in Myanmar.

“We are delighted to work with Ooredoo to help develop a high quality telecommunications network across Myanmar, contribute to the growth of the Myanmar economy and benefit Myanmar citizens across all of the country’s states, regions and territories,” said Denis O’Brien, chairman of Digicel Group.

“Today’s announcement is a significant step in the economic and social development of Myanmar. We are delighted to play our part in such development and look forward to working closely with the government, authorities, telecommunications operators and other local companies,” said Serge Pun, chairman of Yoma Strategic and FMI.

Qatar’s Ooredoo is one of the two international telecommunication providers that earlier this year won the coveted telecom tenders to operate in Myanmar, along with Norway’s Telenor. The licenses, expected in September, have not been formally awarded yet. After receiving the license, Ooredoo can operate for 15 years in Myanmar alongside Telenor, state-owned Myanmar Posts and Telecommunication (MPT), and Yatanarpon Teleport (YTP).
