MTS LAUNCHES LTE IN ARMENIA

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

We are pleased to announce that VivaCell-MTS, a majority-owned subsidiary of MTS in Armenia, has recently launched a special LTE test zone in central Yerevan. This will enable VivaCell-MTS subscribers to test this innovative technology with modems that support the 4G standard. This is the first step in a full-scale nationwide network roll-out. MTS is building the network in cooperation with the leading international suppliers - Ericsson and Huawei.

LTE is a “fourth generation” technology that is more advanced than 3.5G/HSPA and HSPA+ technologies already deployed in Armenia. 4G network allows for up to 150 Mbps download and up to 50 Mbps upload rates.

Armenia is the second country where MTS is building a LTE network. In July 2010, MTS became the first mobile operator to launch a 4G network into commercial operation in Uzbekistan.
