State-run telco Myanma Posts and Telecommunications plans to deploy 150,000 additional CDMA-based limited mobility wireless phone connections in two major cities, Yangon and Mandalay, according to China’s Xinhua news agency. The existing CDMA networks in Yaragon and Mandalay will be expanded by 100,000 and 50,000 lines respectively, using 800MHz equipment, at a cost of around USD500 per new connection. Active CDMA lines in Myanmar numbered 205,000 at the beginning of the year, compared to 375,000 GSM mobile users. Meanwhile, the authorities also say they are aiming to introduce video calling and other 3G applications over a planned W-CDMA mobile network.
