Myanmar hands international voice and data licence to Hutchison Global

1 Oct 2012

Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC), the international fixed-line business division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong, has revealed that it has been granted permission to provide international data and voice services in Myanmar through co-operation with the country’s state-owned telco Myanmar Post and Telecommunication (MPT). HGC’s newly-awarded permission means it becomes the first foreign telecoms operator to provide Myanmar with data and voice services. These include International Private Leased Circuit (IPLC) and the introduction of technology-neutral Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) for the provision of Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP-VPN) data services. In addition, HGC has established direct voice interconnection with MPT and is now authorised to terminate traffic into Myanmar.
