Ooredoo is celebrating its 5th anniversary of service operations in Myanmar according to a press release.

In just 5 years, since its launch in August 2014, Ooredoo Myanmar has accomplished several remarkable milestones, such as network and infrastructure deployments, bringing in the world’s latest technologies to Myanmar, introduction of new and innovative services and an ongoing series of CSR initiatives with a goal of bringing social and economic benefits to communities.

Ooredoo was the first operator to launch the 4G Network in May 2016. Ooredoo mobile network was recognized as the Fastest Mobile Network in Myanmar for 2018 and again in Q1 and Q2 of 2019, by network speed testing global leader Ookla®.

In celebration of its 5th anniversary in Myanmar, Ooredoo Myanmar made contributions at five different locales:  meals to the monks at the International Theravāda Buddhist Missionary University, milk-powder for about 70 infants at Shwegonedine Infants Orphanage, meals for over 800 boys and girls at Nget-Aw-San Boy’s Training School, Kyaik Wine Boy’s Training School and Malikha Training School for Girls.

 “We are very much delighted to hit the 5-year milestone in Myanmar and we would like to thank all of our customers, our government regulators and our partners who helped along the way, since we could not have achieved such success without them. Since the launch of operations, Ooredoo has been operating with 3 core values – Caring, Connecting and Challenging, to fulfill its vision of “enriching people’s digital lives”. We at Ooredoo are and will remain committed to supporting communities with our CSR initiatives. With the active support from our valued customers, we are very much confident we will continue this remarkable momentum in the coming years,” said Mr. Rajeev Sethi, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar.

Since its inception, Ooredoo made multi-billion dollar investment in Myanmar to support telecom infrastructure development and invested over 51 billion MMK in its CSR initiatives. Ooredoo also has fulfilled its 5 Years License obligation by accomplishing network rollout that now covers over 94% of the population of Myanmar. In addition, over 300 townships are under the Myanmar’s Fastest 4G Plus network.

With the aim to bring the latest technology to Myanmar, Ooredoo Myanmar has carried out 5G development initiatives in the country since 2018 and supported the setup of the 5G Technology Centre at Yangon Technology University for the technological students to get a chance to study the latest 5G technology.

Ooredoo Myanmar is also actively supporting digital transformation and leading digitization of the country with its innovative, easy and fast services and products as well as digital customer care services to provide the best experiences to all its customers, the press release said.
