Telenor Myanmar claims it has become the largest 4G/LTE network in Myanmar, covering more than 300 townships with over 6,100 LTE sites nationwide.

After the first quarter of 2019, Telenor Myanmar has successfully rolled out 856 LTE sites in its network and targeting to reach more than 1100 sites by the end of April. Telenor’s high-speed 4G/LTE network currently covers almost 100% of townships with total 307 townships under Telenor’s network in Myanmar.

Since early 2018, Telenor deployed its Network Ambassador, 4GLeo, on his journey across the country to inspect the condition of the network across the country. During the first year of his mission, 4Gleo has already travelled 20,102 kilometres visiting 54 townships for network inspection and customer engagements.

Telenor Myanmar conducted a joint network speed trial last year in collaboration with Ericsson and achieved 1 Gbps, on its 4G/LTE network. The Operator successfully completed a  pilot study of IoT technology for the first time in Mandalay in late November 2018.

Jai Prakash, CTO of Telenor Myanmar
As per our commitment to bring the best possible things for Myanmar citizens, we have achieved our ambitious goal of establishing a network with 6100+ LTE sites in 2019.
