BUSINESS – Telenor pledges a towering success in Burma

Norwegian telecoms firm Telenor says it will erect 2,400 communications towers and structures across Burma within the first year of operation in the country, exceeding the number already in service by government-backed Myanmar Post and Telecommunications. A statement issued by the company said two firms – Singapore-based Green Irrawaddy Technology and India’s Apollo Tower – have been subcontracted for construction of the towers.
