BUSINESS— Telenor turns on its network in Burma

Norwegian telecom giant Telenor became an active mobile network service provider in Burma on Saturday, 27 September. The network, currently active only in Mandalay, will expand to Naypyidaw and Rangoon over the next two weeks. More regions will be connected gradually as the towers are set up. Telenor, with SIM cards priced at 1,500 kyat (US$1.50), is the third mobile network to begin operations in Burma, after Qatari Ooredo and state-owned MPT.
