Qatar’s Ooredoo, which was granted a telecom licence officially in February by the government, has launched its official website in Myanmar, the telecom firm said.
The website, www.ooredoo.com.mm, is available in both English and Myanmar language.
Ooredoo has maintained a significant social media presence since it won a licence to operate in Myanmar in June last year. At the time of writing this report, the company’s Myanmar facebook page had over 165,000 “likes”, while its Norwegian rival Telenor’s facebook page had about 46,000. Ooredoo Myanmar is also present on other social media platforms like Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
Ross Cormack, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar, said: “From now on we must work … to launch after six months of the effective licence date. … Myanmar people have very high expectations towards the products and services we will be delivering in a few months time.”
Earlier the company said it will launch 3G mobile services in Myanmar within six months of the official licence granting date and cover 97 percent of the population in five years.
“We must keep our promises in delivering our services and products to the people of Myanmar. Keeping the promises by word of mouth isn’t enough,” Cormack said.
