Velcom completed the construction phase of its 3G/3.5G network covering cities with a population of at least 30,000 in November 2010. At that date it said the total number of settlements equipped with HSPA+ enabled base transceiver stations (BTS) reached 81, a figure which had climbed to around 110 by the year end.
