Propagation and data use functions launched by MPT
Burma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT) has implemented an Advisory of Charge system (AOC) and data use warnings to keep wireless consumers informed of their outgoings. On 9 October, the state operating company started its AOC alarm system. The system informs the customer after each call how much he or she has used and how much balance they still have on their cellphones.
It makes it easy for the user to identify mistakes in their telephone bill and track the effect of promotional campaigns on their call credit. Ooredoo from Qatar and Telenor from Norway have been offering this services since the launch of their Myanmar network last year. MPT's upgraded services are reportedly available to all Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) and Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) clients.
However, some MPT subscribers have informed the Myanmar Times that no alerts have yet appeared on their mobile phone. "I am using an MPT GSM phone but I have not received this fax. The MPT call center is a good place to file a complaint if a user does not receive the service," said U Aung Kyaw Thet, senior engineering in MPT's on-line invoicing system.
"The ministry may have some flaws in the beginning," he said. The MPT has also started data notification. Clients get an text if they consume more than 50 MB of data/day. SWE THAHAR subscriber to this feature is available to help them monitor their data use, MPT said in a press announcement.

"It is important that clients know exactly how much they are spending," says cell phones consumer U Kyaw Soe Win. There are now over 20 million people and more than 2200 turrets across Myanmar, said MPT graduate U Myo San last week. mpt. That puts it well ahead of its competitors Ooredoo and Telenor, which have around 5 million and 10 million subscribers respectively, although both are rapidly gaining ground in building their network across the state.
Before that, the state-owned company, which has a works contract with the KDDI Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation of Japan, said that 70% of the land will have MPT by the end of next year.
