The number of users of new technologies have exploded in Burma. In just a few years, we have gone from a few hundred thousand for the sale of SIM cards, at almost 22 million today. Only Chinese and Indian neighbours have superior growth!
In 2009, a SIM card cost $ 2,000, while today the cheapest is 1.5 dollar.
Burma become the first “mobile first” country in the world , starting its development in new technologies, i.e. without going through the usual development phase for a website for a computer device.
This evolution where open source is the standard in many situations, shows a new face of the country.
New generation understood that well
Without being a technology addict, Mya Nandar attended in 2014 a gathering focuded on these tools and their uses, called TechCamp Rangoon. At that time, we were just within two years of the next elections, that will take place this November.
