Myanmar Telecoms Market
Overview and Statistics Report
Myanmar’s telecommunications sector is dominated by the state-owned monopoly
service provider, Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications (MPT). The country is battling
grave economic problems and a troubled political climate. Soaring inflation continues
to be a major problem. Reaching a rate of 60% in 2002, inflation had settled back to
about 25% in 2005. The telecom sector is indicative of the overall state of the
nation’s economy. Fixed telephone line penetration is only 1%, mobile services
are prohibitively expensive and Internet access is restricted. This report gives an
overview of the sector. Reliable statistics continue to be difficult to obtain for
Myanmar, the latest official data being for 2003. See summary and table of
