World’s Fastest Mobile Penetration Growth

World’s Fastest Mobile Penetration Growth

Mobile penetration in Myanmar rose from less than 10 percent in 2013 to more than 90 percent in 2016. It is likely to cross 100 percent penetration rate – one phone per person – by 2017.

In 2014, there was basic voice and mostly 2G data. SIM cards were priced at $100-200 when purchased in the black market. Within a span of only two years, high quality voice and 3G coverage is now available across most of the country while SIM cards cost K1,500, or just over a dollar.
