ArmenTel doesn’t plan to digitize whole fixed telecommunication network in Armenia in 2009

YEREVAN, May 21. /ARKA/. ArmenTel (Beeline brand), Armenian telecommunication company fully owned by Russian VimpelCom, doesn’t plan to digitize the whole fixed telecommunication network in Armenia in 2009, Dmitry Pleskonos, Vimpelcom’s executive vice-president on business development in CIS countries, said Thursday at a press conference in Yerevan.

He said that 67% of Armenia’s fixed network has already digitalized while in Russia only 47 percent is digitized.

Uzbekistan reached the highest digitization – 69%.

“The company’s investments - $76 million - in 2008 were mainly spent for digitization of analogous stations. However, we don’t have an objective to digitize the entire country this year”, Pleskonos said.

ArmenTel has spent $200 million over last two years for digitizing analogous stations in Armenia.

The company announced about digitization of three stations in Yerevan in April alone.

Thanks to that, 90% of the capital’s network is digitized.

The company intends to complete digitization in Armenia in 2010.

ArmenTel is a subsidiary of VimpelCom (Beeline trademark).

The Russian company holds 100% of ArmenTel’s shares.

ArmenTel has about 650,000 fixed telecommunication users and 784,000 mobile communication users. M.V.-0--
