Myanmar Post and Telecommunication(MPT) is one among telecommunication operators, which is building the network. After the completion of this cable network, backbone bandwidth will be wider on fiber-optic networks.

Currently, Myanmar has been using cross-border fiber link, SEA-ME-WE3 submarine cable network and INTELAST9, MEASAT 3 AND Satellite THAI-COM 5 for internet network, out of which Cross-border fiber link and SMW3 are mainly used. The rate of internet usages has risen this year.

The measures to enhance the SEA-MEWE3 submarine cable network were undertaken in 2015. As a result, the bandwidth of SEAME- WE3 has risen from 7Gbps to 60Gbps. Three operators in Myanmar are currently using cross-border network between Thailand and Myanmar. However, it is only MPT that has been using SEA-ME-WE3 submarine cable network.
