Telenor rolled out 4G network in Myanmar since last July and with 4G network footprints in 17 cities it has now established the largest 4G network in the country. The company will continue to roll out 4G services to more cities in the months to come.
With less than two months remaining to register all SIM cards, failure to register is considered to be non-compliant with government regulations and will result in service disruption to customers’ subscribed mobile services. The mobile services will continue to be disrupted until SIM card is registered.
