Full-service provider Myanmar Post and Telecommunications (MPT) has extended its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network to 24 new cities and townships, bringing the total number of townships within its fibre footprint to 51. In addition to the Yangon and Mandalay regions, MPT’s fibre services are now available in towns and cities across Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Shan, Tanitharyi and Rakhine. To encourage take up of the service, MPT has also launched a promotion offering new users free installation and one month’s access for free.
Commenting on the development, Chief Commercial Officer Tetsunori Nagashima was quoted as saying: ‘This is a significant milestone for us and the deployment of our fibre internet network shows a clear upward trend and our commitment to provide our customers with fast, secure, and reliable fibre internet service. We understand the importance of speedy internet in today’s personal, social, and business environments. As millions of customers stay home due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we want to empower our customers with the benefits of fibre internet connectivity at very affordable rates. This is how MPT is Keeping Myanmar Connected during these challenging times’.
