Ooredoo launches; competitive era begins in Myanmar telecom

I thought they’d launch on a weekday, but they went two days early and launched August 2nd, Saturday. Better earlier than late.

Perhaps the early launch on a weekend was intended to do just that. Perhaps this is another example of learning from the errors made by others in the past . . .
