Myanmar accelerates towards a vibrant digital future
The phenomenal transition of the Myanmar ICT economy has been driven by a mobile revolution, which enables growth with an ever expanding horizon.
As the fourth mobile licence holder Myanmar National Tele & Communications (a joint venture between Viettel, Star High Public Company and Myanmar National Telecom Holding Public) enters a market of 51 million people with 85% mobile penetration, the market opportunities expand into both the enterprise and broadcasting markets.
Myanmar is ranked seventh across Asia in terms of smartphone penetration at 70% (GSMA Intelligence). In a market of limited bank accounts and restricted essential social service provision the opportunities for the digital economy are exceptional.
