Internet Access @ CDMA800 In Rangoon

Huawei c5720
Internet access in Rangoon is now booming, this post has been posted via internet access through CDMA800 wireless modem. [Post only can be saved. but there was some difficulties to upload images, thus finally post has been published while I reached back in Singapore.] Last week, my family wanted to set up internet access via CDMA network. The steps that we need to do is to go and apply CDMA 800 mobile line and upgrade it into internet access. The cost you need to pay is 500,000 ks for ordinary mobile access, then 30,000 ks to for internet access. Application for ordinary mobile access will take one day processing time. Subscribing internet access needed to wait for one more day of processing time. If you need it in urgent, you will need to pay around 40,000 kyats additional charges for faster processing time.

I am lucky, as of I can get it in two days time. Total cost for the internet accessible CDMA 800 card is 570,000 kyats.

By then, I did go and buy 3G handset that can be used for internet access. There are several brands of handsets that can be used for internet access, however Huawei is the most popular brand in market and Model 8500 and 8600 are the two popular models in market. Huawei 8500 costs around 140,000 kyats and Huawei 8600 will costs you around 240,000 kyats. But, I choose Huawei C5720 that costs 80,000 kyats. After getting SIM card and handset, your credit balances needed to topup. I bought 10,000 kyats credit at same price.

Using internet through CDMA 800 line is quite fast and download speed also comparable to internet donggle used in Singapore. Using as a stationary access point, it is OK but using on mobile, i.e., switching automatically between antenna to antena, it still a bit slow. However, for personal usage, it is affordable and useful internet device for Myanmar. The data usage charges is 4kyats/ minute, means that 240 kyats/ hour, same charges like using in cybercafe, however you can use it at your home with full of privacy.

So that, though initial subscribing charges is a bit high, I would like to recommend internet access through CDMA 800 as a good service internet access.
