Japan's NTT Communications has launched high-speed internet services for enterprises in Myanmar, starting with the Yangon area.

The company has secured a network service license from Myanmar's Ministry of Transport and Communications, and has started offering the new Digi-Path Premier service in the market.

The service provides dedicated, fully managed circuits from 1Mbps to connect enterprises with NTT Com's global network, with 24/7 monitoring of circuits. Delivery of circuits can require as little as one month.

NTT Com is also providing optional services including global IP address, web hosting, mail hosting, rental routers, managed firewalls, internet VPN and file transfers.

NTT Com, along with NEC and Sumitomo, jointly deployed a 30Gbps core optical network between three major Myanmar cities in 2013, under contract from the Myanmar government. The operator established an office in the nation in October 2012, the first in the country from a foreign operator.

The operator said it is now providing internet connections to enterprises globally including in seven Southeast Asian countries - Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, as well as Myanmar.
