Ooredoo Myanmar has announced it has deployed its “4G+” LTE-Advanced Pro network network across 200 townships in Myanmar as part of a major network upgrade.

The operator's 4G+ network now covers 15 million people with services offering speeds of up to 500Mbps – three times faster than its previous maximum 4G speed.

With the upgrade Ooredoo now offers the strongest and widest 4G coverage in Myanmar, according to Ooredoo Myanmar CEO Vikram Sinha.

“We are proud to have delivered this upgrade to over 200 townships in such a short amount of time, making the fastest speeds available a daily reality for our customers,” he said.

“We have big plans for 2018 and are working hard for network upgrade. We want our customers to be able to enjoy the best of the internet in a way that is personal and unique to them.”

Ooredoo Myanmar became the nation's first operator to launch 4G services in May 2016, and reached 500,000 LTE subscribers three months later.

Parent company Ooredoo announced in December last year that it had launched mobile services in Qatar offering speeds of up to 1.2Gbps over a live network.
