Scipio’s Travis Baker contributes a Myanmar property market perspective to Southeast Asia Globe’s feature on the demographic and development issues facing Myanmar today.
Internet in Myanmar has a penetration rate estimated to be 1%. Historically, this was due to regulations on pricing and availability combined with limited infrastructure, which lent to the country’s isolation to the rest of the world.
Things have changed. While infrastructure difficulties remain, and there are no immediate plans to significantly overhaul Myanmar’s internet connectivity, there are a growing number of companies utilizing existing networks and technologies to offer home or office internet access in Myanmar’s larger cities, namely Mandalay, Yangon and Myanmar’s capital, Nay Pyi Daw.
This article will focus in particular on how to secure internet access for your commercial or residential property in Yangon.
Given the rapid pace of change and growth in Myanmar – particularly in Yangon – what little information is available online can become outdated quickly. This means that a ‘desk review’ of the country and the investment climate will never be sufficient as the sole basis on which to make a decision as to whether to invest. But internet research, as in the case of Dan’s well-researched blog post, can serve as a good primer as to what to expect and where to focus investigation efforts.
