Will Myanmar leapfrog over voice services to Internet use?

At the end of its First Quarter of operations, Telenor Myanmar reported 3.4 million subscribers. That’s a hefty number, given Ooredoo had a head start and MPT also got energized during that time.

But the real story is that 40 percent of that number (1.36 million) were daily active data users. This is huge. I’d be surprised if any of Telenor’s other Asian markets with the exception of Malaysia show this high a percentage of data users.

Ooredoo rolled out a 3G only network. There is no reason, their percentage of data users should be any lower. Looks like Myanmar is off to a good start.
