Ooredoo has secured a USD$150 million loan from Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to accelerate the delivery of its network and services to the people of Myanmar. The operator continues its investment in infrastructure to benefit from the opportunity offered by low mobile phone and data usage penetration rates among the 51 million population of Myanmar.

The deal also demonstrates Ooredoo 's long-term commitment to Ooredoo Myanmar, where it has been operating since its license was granted in 2014. Ooredoo said that since its entrance into the market, more than 80% of the population is covered by its 3G network with majority of the Ooredoo customers accessing this network via smart devices.
