Telenor to launch mobile network in Myanmar by 2014

telenor htcNorway’s Telenor Group, one of the two companies that won a mobile phone license in Myanmar, said in a release on July that it will launch first mobile phone services, including 3G, by 2014 in the country.

Telenor said it will use HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) and LTE-Ready (Long Term Evolution) technology for Myanmar to match the technology with global mobile phone networks. A full range of mobile services, both voice and data, will be commercially launched in 2014.

The the nationwide roll-out of its 2G and 3G network should be completed in five years at an investment of around $3 billion. As a first step, Telenor will open branches in major cities such as Yangon, Naypyitaw and Mandalay.

Telenor also said it aims to be the market leader in Myanmar’s mobile phone market, a challenge that will lead to hard competition with Qatar’s Ooredoo, the company that won the other license.

The Norwegian company is operating mobile phone networks in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Serbia, Ukraine, Hungary, Montenegro, Thailand, Malaysia, Bangladesh, India and Pakistan and says that business in Asia is currently the largest revenue contributor.
