Panarmenian.net quotes the chief executive officer of national PTO ArmenTel, Igor Klimko, as saying that his company hopes to complete the 100% digitisation of its fixed line network in the capital Yerevan during the first half of 2011. Klimko went on to say that the telco has also been working on upgrading exchanges to digital in other regions, and as such, these works are complete. It is understood that ArmenTel has invested around USD200 million in recent years to upgrade its fixed line network, with the ITU reporting that the digitisation rate in the capital reached 90% as at April 2009.
