Telenor sets launch date for commercial services in Myanmar

Telenor, one of two successful bidders in the Myanmar spectrum auction, has announced expectations for a Q2 2014 launch of commercial services.

SIM cards will reportedly be available at $1.50 and local calling rates set for half of the existing price charged by Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications (MPT).

The company also said it would roll out a nationwide HSPA and LTE-enabled wireless network within the next five years.

Last week, Telenor announced an official CEO for the company’s operations in Myanmar.
