Balkan Business News quotes Vodafone Albania CEO Haris Broumidis as saying that Vodafone Albania is continuing the rapid expansion of its 3G network with coverage of all major cities no later than summer 2011. ‘I am glad to inform that after introducing 3G technology to the capital city Tirana we have spread our 3G network footprint in Durres, Elbasan, Fushe-Kruje, Fier, Vlora and a number of their surrounding areas. In a few weeks we will have 3G services in Shkoder, Lezhe, Kruje and their surrounding areas. We have envisaged covering with 3G signal all main cities including the coastal populated areas by summer 2011. This summer, holidaymakers can enjoy the full range of 3G services while they are off for their holidays’, Mr. Broumidis said. ‘We are bringing to Albania the upper scale 3G technology which allows speeds of up to 14.4Mbps at the initial stage, which very soon, as the demand increases, will be updated to faster speeds. We believe that Albanians deserve to have one of the most advanced 3G technology in the region’ he added.
