Myanmar Post and Telecommunication (MPT) the state-owned operator in Myanmar, has launched a balance transfer service (BTS) on January. This new service will allow MPT’s customers to transfer balances from minimum 300 Kyats to maximum 10,000 Kyats per transaction to other MPT users. All active prepaid Swe Thahar and base tariff GSM/WCDMA users are eligible to use the BTS. Users must have enough credit in the main balance to cover the transfer amount. The cost for each balance transfer is 5% of the total transfer amount. The 5% is deducted from the sender’s main balance. The recipient is not charged any fees. Users can make up to five transfers per day and receive as much or as many as they need.
Koichi Kawase, Chief Commercial Officer of MPT-KSGM joint venture, said “MPT understands that sometimes you just need that extra bit of credit, perhaps it is an emergency and you need to make a call to a friend or family member, or maybe you just can’t find somewhere to top up! Either way the balance transfer service is there to help in times of need.”
User can enjoy the balance transfer service by sending USSD code: (*223*amount to send*recipient’s number# ).
