Myanmar never gets old


Industry leaders review 2019 and discuss what is next for the country

Five years ago, Myanmar had no towercos on the ground and buying a SIM card was a prohibitive privilege. Now, the country has 56mn mobile subscribers and a 110% mobile penetration. Moreover, the Post & Telecommunications Department (PTD) reports 23,381 towers across the country’s diverse geography with a tenancy ratio of 1.35, which varies from 1.1 to 2.2 between different players.
