Ooredoo Myanmar achieves 1 mn mobile user base in 3 months

Ooredoo Myanmar has achieved one million mobile customers, less than three weeks after kicking off its telecom services.

Ooredoo has invested and installed the world’s first next-generation UMTS900 network throughout Myanmar, which will provide fast internet and is primed to enable a smooth transition to a 4G LTE network in the future.

Since the launch of Ooredoo in Myanmar, the company has seen unprecedented demand for its mobile phone and internet services, with people queuing overnight to purchase a low-cost Ooredoo SIM. The team is striving to deliver up to customers’ expectations, offering crystal clear voice services and fast Internet.

“I think of people like Daw Hla, a fisherwoman, who has never used a mobile phone before our launch, will benefit. She told us this was a golden opportunity to reach out and connect her community through technology,” said Ooredoo Group Chairman Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Bin Saud Al Thani.

Alongside traditional sales and services jobs, which cover 6,500 dealers at launch and 30,000 points of sale for top-ups, the company estimate through the distribution network alone Ooredoo has already supported approximately 50,000 new jobs for the people of Myanmar.

Ross Cormack, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar said the network will extend to include 25 million people by the end of 2014.
