Megacom brings 3.5G services to Issyk Kul
Kyrgyz mobile operator Megacom has rolled out its 3.5G wireless network in the Issyk Kul region. Already available in the cities of Bishkek, Kant and Tokmok, as well as a number of smaller towns and cities, Megacom plans to expand its 3.5G network to the entire country by the end of 2012. Megacom launched commercial 3.5G services, including videocalling, mobile TV and high speed mobile broadband at download speeds of up to 14.4Mbps, in January 2012. The network is future-proofed to support the later evolution to Long Term Evolution (LTE), which can offer data rates of up to 100Mbps.
