Moscow-based fixed line operator Comstar UTS has opened a branch in St Petersburg, Digital Media Asia reports. Comstar acquired smaller telco Astelit in June 2006, and says it has now completed the first stage of a next generation network (NGN) based on Astelit’s network in the city, and will fully integrate the subsidiary’s operations into its own. The company added that it will continue to focus on corporate clients in Moscow and St Petersburg, as well as expanding services available to existing Astelit clients.
