Rostelecom plans LTE network in Sochi

9 Jun 2010

Russian national operator Rostelecom has applied to the State Commission for Radio Frequencies for permission to construct Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks in Sochi, reports Vedomosti. Mobile operator MegaFon also plans LTE development in the same region. Both operators are sponsors of the Winter Olympics 2014 which will be held in Sochi. The ministry argues that building two LTE networks in the city is impractical and says it is necessary for players to negotiate.
