Communication / Internet Facilities

Landline

International calls can be made from most of the hotels, but calls are very expensive, starting from 7USD a minute to Europe. It is necessary to ask the price and call conditions beforehand in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Although it is quite easy to make International Direct Dial (IDD) calls from Rangoon, it might be more difficult from certain areas such as Inle Lake, Pindaya or Puta O where you might need to make your call through an operator.
Receiving a call from abroad is very difficult in Yangon and almost impossible from another area of Myanmar.

Mobile phones

Myanmar is now installed with GSM and CDMA telecommunication networks covering major cities and some remote towns. It is now possible to bring your mobile phone into Myanmar without needing to answer fussy questions at airport custom desk, but we are regret to inform you that your mobile phone will not be entirely compatible with the system using in Myanmar until 2010.

Computers & Digital Equipments

It is possible to bring your laptop / palmtop computers, iPods, or GPS Navigators into Myanmar. Some cyber cafés and hotels have ADSL broadband wired or wireless access. Most of the branded computer and digital camera accessories can be purchased in Yangon.

Internet

Cyber Cafes / Public Access Centers (PACs) are now widely available in most of the big cities in Myanmar (Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Bago, Moulmein, Nyaung Shwe, Hpa An), making you an easy browsing on the go.
Although the internet service in Myanmar is heavily censored, you can still surf freely to most of non-politic websites, wikis, blogs, and chat-rooms etc. but not to the popular web mails like yahoo, Gmail, hotmail, GMX, and AOL etc. Some cyber cafés could help you to access these webmail by tunneling but it is not always easy. In some places, it is possible to call using IP telephony services through gtalk, skype, mediaringtalk etc.
