The Liberalization of Myanmar's Telecom Sector Author: Tenzin Norbhu

From Handshake Issue #15: Connectivity

Political and social transformations in Myanmar have made possible reform of the country’s telecommunications sector. Liberalization has allowed a country with the lowest rates of telecom penetration to leapfrog into the digital age. In February 2012, it cost $300 to buy a mobile SIM card anywhere in Myanmar—that is, if such a rare find made itself available. But just over two years later, in September 2014, you could easily purchase one for $1.50—and have your choice from among three operators.
