Rangoon Yangon News Board
Do I need to take Wi-Fi with me? That side says it's a complete wastage, but I'm sceptical..... Wi-Fi is really stained. Cities claiming to have Wi-Fi, not really. Wi-Fi was best before 8:30. Not only was it sluggish - in several places claiming to have Wi-Fi, among them the Sedona in Mandalay (a large "western" hotel), there was simply no discernible web, although they said they had it.
I would have been much less strenuous if I had realized that when Myanmar's properties advertise Wi-Fi, this is a completely different industry to anywhere else in Asia! There were even cybercafés, which were sluggish and unsound. When I tried to mail a one-time corporate e-mail from my $US170 per overnight stay (which had promoted his outstanding WLAN) for 6 hour, the employees said there were always "problems" with attaching it.
The Wi-fi is stained and often out when you try to connect to web pages in Yangon, but in general you can send e-mails without problems. Also other cities and places will be confusingly slowly. Fortunately I never have to use the web much..... Sedona in Mandalay had an indication that the Myanmar government was "waiting" for the Yangon-Mandalay wire.
Mobile phones/cell phones: I had a GSM phone with an Optus (Australia) phone that didn't come on at all, but my wife's iPhone 4 with a CSL 1010 from Hong Kong was immediately connected to the MM900. Then later that afternoon my missus phoned back and the phone worked fine again. However, beyond Yangon you need a real estate card.
Twenty thousand Kyat (US$20) SIMs with about 19 min. of foreign call value and extensive text and text messaging. You can recharge your phone by purchasing call times. The card is available for 30 working nights from the date of your call. However, if you are looking for calling internationally, please refer to IDD, which are usually available in denominations of 10,000 Kyat.
So I found one in New Bagan City and the friendly personnel on the mall was helping me. While most 3/4/5 stars provide free WiFi, they are usually limited to the private area.
