Orange will extend its coverage in a number of rural areas
Orange Armenia will extend the coverage of its network in the following rural areas: Ditsmayr, Geghanush, Gomaran, Bnunis (Syunik region) and Antaramut, Kachachut (Lori region). All these villages will be covered with the modern technology allowing up to 21.6 Mbps download speed.
Francis Gelibter, Orange Armenia CEO, said: «We have started with an up to 7.2 Mbps capacity network and 83% coverage on November 5, 2009, and today I am pleased to state that our services are available to more than 95% of the Armenian population. Moreover, in Yerevan, Gumri and Vanadzor we offer up to 42Mbps capacity network, and up to 21Mbps in the rest of the country.
In addition to network extension in the mentioned villages, Orange Armenia will continue to expand its network, with due care for its performance and quality. Even though Orange has overachieved its coverage obligations under the license, I am very much pleased that we will be able to provide a solution for the villages that are not yet covered by any operator».
