MPT connectivity suffering from lack of towers

Recently launched Myanmar Post and Telecommunication (MPT) SIM cards are facing connectivity issues in many parts of Burma due to lack of network towers. The 1,500 kyat (US$1.50) MPT SIM card holders from Chin, Karenni and Arakan states have reported that the network connectivity is very weak and available only in select regions of their states. Without adequate network towers in Burma, industry observers believe that new international providers Ooredo and Telenor will face similar problems.
