Telenor Myanmar launches Asia 9 roaming package

Telenor Myanmar has launched a new international roaming package offering data roaming at local rates in nine Asian markets.

The new Asia 9 plan offers data roaming at 9 kyats ($0.0058) per MB in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Singapore, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Indonesia.

Aimed at prepaid and postpaid customers traveling to or working in the markets, the new plan has a weekly subscription fee of 900 kyats.

Standard data rates in the nine countries start at 500 per MB. During a promotional period which will last until further notice, Telenor Myamnar will offer customers not subscribing to the new roaming package data roaming in the nine markets at 14 kyat per MB.

“Telenor possesses one of the best data networks in the region and taking the best out of it, we created this new ‘ASIA 9’ promotion. Telenor customers in Myanmar can now browse the internet as if they are in their own country while they are traveling or working in those 9 Asian countries,” Telenor Myanmar CMO Amaresh Kumar said

“This would create the best chance for our customers to stay connected with their friends, families and even to run a virtual office. To offer the customers with the most affordable and innovative services that suit their needs is always on top of our priorities and we will continue to do so.”
