Ooredoo says that it has already broken through the one million customer milestone in its newest market of Myanmar, less than three weeks after going live with its services.
The company said that people have been queuing overnight to purchase one of its SIM cards.
Speaking of the challenges faced during the development stage, Ross Cormack, CEO Ooredoo Myanmar, praised the 1,000 employees of the Ooredoo Myanmar team, and stated that - in keeping with the company's tradition of hiring local talent - 800 of these team members are Myanmar people.
Alongside traditional sales and services jobs, which cover 6,500 dealers at launch and 30,000 points of sale for top-ups, the company estimate through the distribution network alone Ooredoo has already supported approximately 50,000 new jobs for the people of Myanmar.
Cormack commented: "This wonderful nation's pent-up demand for mobile communication services has surpassed even our expectations, and as our reach expands across the country these opportunities will increase."
