Armenian fixed and mobile operator ArmenTel, which trades under the Beeline banner of its Russian parent Vimpelcom, has lowered its tariffs for wholesale internet access. Online journal PanArmenian.net quotes the company’s press office as saying that a 1Mbps international transit TCP/IP traffic service will be charged at AMD78,000 (USD217.2) per month.
Only last month ArmenTel doubled retail bandwidth for its Hi Line 2048 broadband subscribers from 512kbps to 1024kbps. The initiative has been possible thanks to improvements in the telco’s backbone network, its CEO Igor Klimko said. Hi Line users will not be charged for the upgrade, which will be carried out in a phased process. ArmenTel’s ADSL-based service is currently available in 38 cities across the country.
