MPT upgrades FTTH service in time for holiday season

15 Oct 2018

State-backed incumbent Myanmar Post and Telecommunications (MPT) has significantly increased the download speeds of its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) plans at no extra cost for its customers, as it leads up to the nation’s Thadingyut Festival. Users on its 2Mbps, 5Mbps and 10Mbps FTTH plans – costing MMK39,000 (USD24.3), MMK69,000 and MMK109,000, respectively – will have their connections upgraded to provide peak speeds of up to 10Mbps, 25Mbps and 50Mbps from today, 15 October 2018. In addition to the service upgrade, MPT confirmed that it had added the Chan Aye Thar San township in Mandalay to its FTTH coverage area. Chief Commercial Officer Reizo Umeda was quoted as saying of the development: ‘MPT’s FTTH service plan has been significantly revamped, now offering updated speeds, five times faster, but while retaining the same low rates for our valued customers. This means that subscribers simply get a markedly faster and better overall experience as they connect to our cutting-edge network for entertainment, work, play or socialising online like never before … We would like to also wish all our customers a Happy Thadingyut, and we hope our FTTH service users take advantage of the new rates and speeds over the festive holiday period. ’
