What type of broadband user are you?
To find the broadband package that’s right for you, first think about what you’ll be using your broadband for and how much you’ll be using it.
Light use – if you’re not online a lot, and not using internet a lot, then a low usage package may be the best solution for you.. After you can upgrade your package if you find out you need higher speeds.
Heavy use – if you enjoy gaming online and/or streaming TV or HD /4K movies, or have many devices in the home accessing WiFi, Then you are heavy user. You’ll probably need unlimited download limits as exceeding limits can incur extra chargesin mobile data usage. Serious users will also need fibre rather than WIFI broadband, to ensure speeds are sufficient to maintain connectivity. Families with multiple users on multiple devices should definitely consider and go for an unlimited data package to avoid extra charges.
Working from home – if you work from home occasionally, a home broadband package should be fine, but if you run a business from home you’ll probably need a business broadband package,too.e
How will you connect to the internet?
The way you connect to the internet may affect the broadband speeds and packages you can get. There are a number of choices, all of which may not be available in your area.
ADSL broadband – this is a connection provided over your home phone line.There were ADSL lines organised by YPT. As their network is mostly copper wire, speeds and performance can vary significantly from area to area.There are two types of ADSL broadband – ADSL1 and ADSL2. ADSL2 is the fastest option. The development of ADSLis stopped now.
Fibre or ‘superfast’ broadband – fibre cable allows much faster speeds and a more consistent service. This superfast broadband is now available in many cities in MyanmarTo see if you’re able to get fibre broadband where you live, use the government’s postcode checker. There are two types of fibre connection – FTTC and FTTP. FTTP is the fastest option and tends to be more expensive.
Cable – This uses a mix of fibre optic and coaxial cables. It’s faster than ADSL, but not yet available everywhere in Myanmar.
Satellite – for some rural areas with poor network coverage, this might be the only option. You’ll receive your signal via a satellite dish rather than cables. While speeds and stability have improved significantly in recent years, it’s more expensive than other options.
Mobile broadband – this bypasses cables completely and uses your mobile signal to connect to the internet. You’ll need a dongle, which connects wirelessly to your mobile network via your PC. Or a Mi-Fi, which is essentially carrying a hotspot Wi-Fi in a small device.

How much data do I need?
As a guide we estimate that you’ll need the following data for:
Browsing and email use: Up to 10GB a month
Browsing and on-demand TV: 10-30GB a month
Browsing, on-demand TV, movies and music downloads: 40-80GB a month
All of the above, plus gaming: 40GB to unlimited a month
We’d always recommend that if you think you’re likely to use 40GB+, an unlimited option is probably the best choice.
Is broadband speed important to you?
Superfast fiber broadband is very useful if there are several people using the same broadband connection at the same time. It’s also good for downloading films and gaming. Be aware that for browsing, emailing, uploading some photos and watching IPTV or online streaming services like Netflix it shouldn’t be necessary – unless more than one device is using the internet at the same time.
One should remember, you only need 3 Mbps to watch movies HD, while the minimum recommended broadband speed for Netflix is just 2.5 Mbps.
How long a contract do you want?
Most broadband contracts are set up for at least 3,6,12 and months to get a better pricing. And can have quite hefty fees if you want to exit early, so it’s important to ensure to choose the best suitable one.you are fully happy with a deal and that it suits your needs before tying yourself in.
Which broadband provider should you choose?
There’s an enormous amount of choice, from leading providers like Telenor, Mytel, Ooredoo to competitors like Myanmar Country, We Link, Vnet., MN, Spped Net, Fortune, YTP etc. that have been getting in on the act in recent years.
As a result, new broadband offers and promotions are cropping up all the time, and prices are constantly changing. So we want to help you to save time, money and energy to choose thebest suitable solution for you at your plce.
When looking for a provider, you’ll want to take into account price, as well as type of connection, speeds and any data limits. You might also want to look at what the provider offers in terms of bundled TV and phone deals, and at their reputation for customer service.
How about broadband package deals?
A bundle deal wraps up your broadband with your home phone and TV into one package.
To work out whether it’s right for you you’ll need to compare the costs of what you pay for the separate parts with what you’d pay for the bundle/package.
You could save by getting everything from one broadband provider.
Frequently asked questions
What are my broadband options?
There are three types of broadband available. You can narrow down your decision by finding out what speeds you need and what connection you have. As this can be tricky, an easy way to do it is to select a package and see if it’s available in your area.
ADSL – Delivers internet connectivity down the copper wires used by your existing phone line. ADSL speeds vary according to how far you live from your local telephone exchange. The top speeds for downloads are usually up to 24Mbps, and the top speeds for uploads are usually up to 2Mbps. ADSL broadband is widely available in the UK, with coverage available for more than 99% of the UK population. As such, the majority of homes in the UK have ADSL connections.
Cable – Uses a mix of fibre optic and coaxial cables. It’s faster than ADSL, but not available in Myanmar.
Fibre – Information is carried as pulses of light down microscopically thin ‘pipes’ of glass or plastic, before being turned into internet data. You’ll generally know if you have this because of a green box on street corners or a cabinet at home that holds your broadband connections.
Types of fibre broadband
Fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) is the most common, with fibre optic cables running to a ‘cabinet’ – the grey boxes on street corners that house the telecoms connections to each home. From the cabinet, copper telephone wires take over to get the information to your home.
Fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) is faster than FTTC because it uses fibre cables all the way to your property. This gets around the limitations of copper wires completely. Gigaclear uses FTTP and can provide speeds of up to 900 Mbps in certain locations in Myanmar.
How fast is fibre broadband?
It depends whether you’re using FTTC or FTTP. Advertised speeds for FTTC (which is much more widely available) typically start at 10-20 Mbps, for the larger providers. FTTP is advertised as the pinnacle of fast broadband, with providers boasting hugely improved speeds of up to 900 Mbps. Take a look at some of the fastest broadband deals available at the moment.
What do ‘up to’ speeds mean on broadband packages?
The ‘up to’ speed is usually the maximum speed you’ll be able to achieve. But bear in mind that sometimes your internet will be slower than this.
From May 23 2018 (in Europe e.g.), broadband providers can no longer advertise ‘up to speeds’, which may only be available to 10% of customers. They must now ensure speed claims are based on the download speed available to at least half of customers at peak times and describe them as ‘average’.
As ADSL is delivered along copper wire, the speed can vary dramatically depending on how far from the telephone exchange you live.
With fibre broadband the speed shouldn’t deviate so much, particularly if you have FTTP broadband.
How do I know if I need fibre broadband?
If you have multiple internet users or devices, or you want to use any sort of streaming service, such as movies, music or TV, or you play games online, fibre broadband can improve the quality.How can I find the best fibre broadband option for me?
Should I get unlimited data or a data limit?
Unlimited broadband data means that you can use as much data as you like each month without being charged extra.
The advantage of a limit on a capped deal is that it will usually be cheaper. However, only opt for this if you’re sure that you will stay within the limit. Exceeding it could see you hit with additional charges or your speed reduced to a crawl.
To help work out how much data you need, take a look at a few things you might do online and how much data they use.
Can I cancel my fibre broadband package at any time?
Cancellation fees usually apply if you want to switch early. It depends on each provider how strictly they would apply their policy. When choosing a broadband package it’s important to be comfortable with the overall contract period.
