MPT expands LTE-A to every state and region

2 Jan 2018

State-backed mobile operator Myanmar Post and Telecommunications (MPT) has announced that its ‘LTE+’-branded LTE-A network is now available in every state and region of the country, following the launch of the service in Hakha (Chin State) and Kyaiktiyo (Mon State). Last month MPT announced upgrades to its LTE-A 4×4 MIMO network, enabling speeds of up to 300Mbps on compatible devices. Going forward, the firm is aiming to roll out its high speed 4G service to 280 townships nationwide by the end of 2018.

‘MPT has seen first-hand the amazing ways that our customers use our award-winning LTE+ network around the country, so we are proud to see the introduction of our LTE+ network in both Hakha and Kyaiktiyo. This important milestone in the development of Chin State means that MPT LTE+ is now available in every state and region of Myanmar,’ said Reizo Umeda, COO of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.
