The Blue Wave expands to Magway, Bago and Taungoo


Telenor Myanmar has celebrated the official opening of its network in Sagaing, Magwe, Bago and Ayeyarwady divisions. The mobile operator also annouced that 1.5 million new SIM cards will be released into the market each month to satisfy the demand for Telenor connectivity. This is Telenor Myanmar’s first expansion of its network in 2015. In 2014, Telenor switched on its networks in three major cities of Myanmar; Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay. With these latest additions, Telenor is one step closer to its target of offering services in 50 percent of Myanmar’s Townships by end of February. Last week, Telenor’s iconic “Blue Wave” reached the townships of Bago, Taungoo and Magway.
