Confusion looms over Myanmar's 3G debut

Although government officials had announced that cheaper 3G SIMs will replace 2G SIMs this month, Myanma Post and Telecommunications has refused to confirm the sale date or the exact prices.

“We cannot confirm prices that are being speculated by outside sources because there is a better plan,” MPT’s chief engineer, U Htay Win, told The Myanmar Times on January 15.

Sources previously reported mixed launch dates and prices to The Myanmar Times. U Htay Win said on January 2 the price of the new SIMs would be set at K150,000.
