Minister for Communications and Information Technology U Myat Hein said that the new company would be called Myanmar Public Telecom, inviting companies gathered in Naypyidaw to help establish the firm at an undisclosed date. After MPT becomes a public company it will be one of four private telecommunications providers in the country, along with Yatanarpon Teleport and two other as yet undetermined operators, the Times reported.
