WorldGSM™ for Myanmar: Connecting the New Highway
The gleaming Yangon – Naypyidaw-Mandalay highway is a powerful symbol of Myanmar’s new dynamism and economic transformation. The challenge before state operator Myanma Post and Telecommunications (MPT) was to provide seamless mobile coverage on the highway that passes through some of the remotest parts of the country. VNL provided a seamless GSM network along almost 480 kms of the highway using the solar-powered WorldGSM™ solution.
