World Technology is entering the retail bandwidth sector
is a Myanmar-based solutions company that provides wholesaling and enterprise information solutions in the United States. In Yangon, Gobalnet has built a large fibre optic cable net with Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation (YESC) masts and claimed to own the biggest fibre optic net in Myanmar's business capitol. This Myanmar-based company is now aiming to monetise its current fibre-optic infrastructure by bringing a new 5BBB.
Please be aware that Global Technology recently won the contract for Nay Pi Daw, Bago, Mon State and Kayin State to supply our products. Myanmar based provider is more likely to use the 5BB trademark to market its new mobile telephony solutions in these areas. Redlink, Global Technology's affiliate, used to be the premier Myanmar based technology supplier, but the business has seen a significant decline in population.
The Myanmar Ministry of Transport and Communications also called on Redlink to abandon its present frequency assignment, which was allocated to newcomers. With the start of 5BB the dawn of Redlink in Myanmar has dawned.
Burma ISP GlobalNet reveals LTE plan
The Myanmar Times reports that Global Technology Group, an Myanmar-based provider of LTE technology, announces that it will roll out LTE Wi-Fi in 30 towns and cities from April 2018. Also known as GlobalNet, the firm received 2x20MHz 2.6GHz bandwidth in the regional 1 bandwidth, which covers Myanmar's capitol Nay Pyi Taw along with the Magway, Bago, Mon, Kayin and Tanintharyi areas, according to the Myanmar web-site.
In October 2016, Myanmar Post and Telecommunication Department distributed six batches of LTE across three geographic areas. GlobalNet, with the biggest fiber optic net in Yangon, Myanmar, has so far concentrated on the commercial world. The Myanmar Times states that it was awarded a maintenance concession for grid systems in 2015 and a license for fiber optic networks in March 2017.
The company offers FFTTx services in the Yangon, Mandalay and Bago area. The company competes with the state-owned company Max Planck Society, which began to install fibre-optic lines for households in August. Currently there are three carriers in Myanmar - MaxT, Telenor and Ooredoo - but a forth-playing MyTel is building a 4G-only system and is planning to start operations in the first quarter of 2018.
In January, the Vietnamese Viettel Group and a syndicate of Vietnamese enterprises under the name Myanmar National Tele & Communications received a license. Vietnam participates with 49 percent in the grid investments.
