The upgraded Ooredoo 4G Pro network has been designed to offer the fastest browsing speeds in Myanmar with speeds of up to 500 Mbps.
Ooredoo Group today announced that Ooredoo Myanmar will significantly expand its network and infrastructure to offer the widest and fastest 4G network in the country. By the end of 2017, Ooredoo’s superfast 4G network is expected to reach more than 15 million people across 200 towns, which will significantly enhance their data experience and allow them to enjoy the internet even more.
The upgraded Ooredoo 4G Pro network has been designed to offer the fastest browsing speeds in Myanmar with speeds of up to 500 Mbps, which is three times faster than the current mobile internet speed offered by the existing 4G networks.
With this upgrade, Ooredoo customers will be able to take advantage of the extra speeds and smooth browsing to stay in touch with their loved ones, enjoy live broadcasting, stream their favourite music, watch on-demand ultra HD videos and take part in real-time gaming.
Sheikh Saud bin Nasser Al Thani, Group Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo, said: “With this launch, Ooredoo is keeping its promise to continue to focus on its core mission – to make the internet available and enjoyable for everyone. We have been ahead of the curve in the markets where we operate to deliver the best data experience. Our network modernisation programme is successfully bringing 4G and 4G+ services to our customers, enriching their daily digital lives.”
Vikram Sinha, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar said: “Our goal is to enable our customers to enjoy the internet more by offering them higher speeds and enhancing their daily data experience. Our continuous investments in the network bring us closer to making the highest theoretical speeds a daily reality to our customers and put Ooredoo Myanmar on an evolutionary path to 5G.”
To achieve this significant upgrade in a timely manner, Ooredoo has partnered with two leading network technology providers – Nokia and ZTE, which have significant expertise to ensure on-time rollout and optimal performance to place Ooredoo at the forefront of network technology in Myanmar.
Ooredoo’s cutting-edge network upgrade uses a combination of Carrier Aggregation, 4×4 MIMO, 256 QAM and License Assisted Access (LAA) to deliver a potential download speed of up to 500Mbps at selected locations by early 2018 to enhance network performance for the customers.
