The selection process for the market's third operator was a spectacle to behold
Your Myanmar statistic of the day:
Myanmar’s mobile subscriber base reached close to 9.4 million last month, according to U Thaung Tin, the country’s deputy minister for Telecommunications and Information Technology.
That works out to 16% penetration, which would mean Myanmar’s mobile teledensity just doubled since early 2013.
And according to Myanmar Times, Thaung Tin says that’s nothing compared the growth you’ll see in the next year or so:
“We hope to reach 75 percent to 80 percent of tele-density in the 2015-2016 fiscal year,” Thaung Tin said.
