YANGON -- Myanmar's new cellphone carrier will install a network of 5,000 base stations before it commences service in early 2018, the company's chief external relations officer has told The Nikkei.

Zaw Min Oo said Myanmar National Tele & Communications will introduce fourth-generation service as it pursues established carriers such as state-owned Myanma Posts and Telecommunications, or MPT. The newcomer targets a 25% share of the cellphone market by 2021.
