Data SIM card for iPhone

Jump to last reply

Is it now possible to buy a SIM card for iPhone 6 that gives 1 or 2 gb data? Will this work outside Yangon. Tamer, kyaikhtiyo, ngapali, mawlamyine??

Thanks

    This is my post today on tripadvisor,which may help
    "As the MPT office at Yangon arrivals was closed at 10pm I called into a CityMart shop the next morning, where all three providers had franchise shops.

    We chose MPT because I was told that at one of my destinations, Ngapali Beach, it had the best coverage.

    Bought SIM for 1500kyat with a 10000kyat top up. Staff changed the SIM, added the loading for me showing me the screen confirmation of loading and away I went.

    In my 21 days in various locations I always had coverage of 5 bars and could make calls/SMS and data.

    I had coverage all the way up the Irrawaddy from Yangon via Prome and Magway to Mandalay and even in the Delta there was a mast in sight.

    Data costs were negligible for such items as emails/weather/maps/tripadvisor and overseas calls/texts were very cheap. Evening calls to the UK for a couple of minutes were less than 1200kyat and although my initial outgoing SMS messages were not received, further incoming/outgoing SMS following phone calls were received.

    Local calls/SMS were very cheap at 50kyat pm

    I still had 3600kyat credit when I left the country and the SIM is valid till October.

    The MPT website itemises the call/data costs.

    The other two providers have similar products/prices but MPT suited me.

    Note-all three have kiosks at Yangon Domestic arrivals"
