Internet services are widely available in Burma and are usually quite inexpensive. You may experience intermittent telephone and internet connections, particularly outside major centers. Your cell phone may not operate in Burma, even if you have global roaming.
It is possible to make international phone calls from major towns and cities though these can be expensive. International direct dial is commonly available from hotels at an extra cost, and reverse charge phone calls can usually be made for a fee.
It costs slightly less to send international mail than from Western countries, and mail can take approximately 14 days to reach its destination. Any packages will be inspected by Customs staff at the post office prior to being sealed, and boxes are usually for sale if needed.
