Mytel, Myanmar’s fourth telecom operator, officially launched its services in the country on June 9 and now offers 80 per cent of 2G and 4G network coverage in the country, a top executive said, according to dealstreetasia.

Viettel, which is backed by Vietnam’s defence ministry, owns a 49 per cent stake in the joint venture while the Myanmar consortium holds 23 per cent. Star High Public owns the remaining 28 per cent, the report said.
