Ooredoo aims to set up an even larger distribution network than Telenor, spanning 240,000 outlets selling SIMs and 720,000 points of sale where top-ups can be bought within five years.
The operator also plans to offer VAS including mobile money, mHealth services and local video content streaming.
Ooredoo aims to invest around $60 million in corporate social responsibility initiatives over the next 10 years, including offering at least one free internet AP to all public schools, universities, libraries, hospitals and clinics in the nation.
Ooredoo plans for 99.9% of its local unit's employees to be Myanmar citizens within five years. Telenor has also committed to draw heavily from the local workforce.
Telenor and Ooredoo beat out nine other operators or operator-led consortia to win the two telecom licenses.
