CDMA networks expanding in Myanmar

15 Jun 2009

The Xinhua news agency reports that the Myanmar government is planning to raise the capacity of CDMA networks covering the country’s two largest cities of Yangon and Mandalay by 150,000 subscribers. According to the Chinese agency Myanmar had around 200,000 CDMA telephony users at the end of 2008, as well as 375,000 GSM mobile subscribers, although mobile phones are predominantly issued to those connected to the military-run authorities or businesses. It was also reported that the existing network of 400 public telecoms access centres covering 44 towns is being expanded this year to cover all towns in the country.
