MPT Begins Rollout of LTE+ Network, Targets 30 Cities Across the Country by September

State owned telco MPT has begun roll­ing out its new Long Term Evolution network in Myanmar’s largest cit­ies, which, the company says, can be up to twice as fast as traditional 4G/LTE networks.

Known as LTE+, the new network will enable download and uploads on mobile devices up to 10 times faster than a standard 3G network, an update from the company said.

MPT is using the latest 4×4 Multiple Input Out­put (MIMO) which uses twice the amount of re­ceivers and transmitters in a phone from a tower to send and receive data, ac­cording to MPT.

The “cutting edge tech­nology essentially leap­frogs the previous 4G/ LTE 2×2 MIMO, achiev­ing double the speed,” it said.

“The highly advanced technology that powers MPT’s LTE+ network is the best in Myanmar,” said Mr Toshitake Amamiya, CEO of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations. “It offers cus­tomers lighting fast mo­bile data speeds unlike what was possible before, at the same charges…”

“Data users will feel the incredible difference as they download or send large files, play data-in­tensive games or stream high definition videos at just a fraction of the time through our boosted cell towers.”

MPT began rolling out its LTE+ network in Yan­gon, Mandalay and Nay­pyitaw in May after it was allocated blocks of 1.8 gi­gahertz spectrum by the government.

Rollout will begin in Bago, Taunggyi, Maw­lamyaine, Monywa and Pathein in July and MPT is targeting to have its LTE+ network live in over 30 cities across the nation by September.
