The Vietnamese military-run telecom group, Viettel, is expected to offer the world’s first 4G-only network in Myanmar in the first quarter of 2018.

A joint venture including Viettel was granted a licence at the beginning of the year. However, Viettel has pursued the market since 2002.

Viettel said it planned to make a big investment in Myanmar, which has the largest population (55 million) among the 10 foreign markets in which it operates.

Myanmar’s telecom market is currently dominated by three network providers: MPT with 42 per cent market share, Telenor (Norway) with 35 per cent and Ooredoo (Qatar) with 23 per cent. MyTel is the fourth telecom provider in the country.
