Orange Armenia, the mobile start-up owned by France Telecom, says it has upgraded its 3G network in the country with HSUPA technology. In a press release the company said that via the new ‘High Upload’ option all users of its Orange mobile broadband internet services would be able to receive a maximum upload speed of 2Mbps – in ideal radio and network conditions. The cellco claims to be the first to launch HSUPA in Armenia and in the South Caucasus region, and says the improved 3G+ service is available to more than 85% of the population, in all regions of the country, across the whole Orange network. The High Upload option can be activated for AMD2,000 (USD5.40) at any time during a calendar month, and will be active until the last day of the given month.
