“It truly saddens me to see our country gradually affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced many citizens to restrain themselves form most of their day to day routine such as going out, hanging out with friends, and working out or enjoying outdoor leisure activities. In addition, more and more businesses start to exercise work from home practice. For both personal and professional reasons, people need any means to compensate for the situation and find a way to enjoy their stay at home time and e-communicating for different reasons. These situations not only hinder people from their daily lives but also impact them financially as they have to spend more on telecommunications and internet consumption. Understanding the dire impact that has been put upon our customers, we aim to show our support through this 50% bonus program which will not only help save money, but it will also help users to enjoy our services while staying in. I hope all of our citizens are safe and are taking the necessary safety measures very seriously. Let’s fight this together.” said U Zaw Min Oo, Mytel’s Chief External Relations Officer.

The promotion period will be from March 31, 2020, to June 30, 2020. Within the promotional period, Mytel customers will get extra bonus upon any successful top-up. The bonus is 50% of the top-up amount and will be credited into a promotional balance, which can be used for Voice on-net, SMS on-net, and Data PAYG.
