Pretty Fli for a Wi-Fi: Orange Armenia launches 21Mbps MyFli device

28 Feb 2013

Mobile network operator Orange Armenia has launched a new device under the banner MyFli which allows subscribers to access the internet at speeds of up to 21Mbps in areas served by its network coverage. Arka News writes that the new MyFli device creates a Wi-Fi hotspot for the user, enabling up to ten simultaneous connections for PCs and tablets etc. The cellco’s marketing director Aram Mkrtchyan confirmed that MyFli will open up HSPA+ speed capability in all regions across Armenia.

To support the launch, Orange Armenia is offering users a range of special tariffs if they sign up before 7 April. As such, subscribers signing up to a one-year contract can take a 5GB bundle of data for AMD6,000 (USD14.67) per month, rising to AMD11,000 for 25GB; the device itself costs AMD4,000 or AMD1 – depending on which option is taken – it adds. People signing up to a 24-month contract pay either AMD5,000 or AMD10,000 (5GB or 25GB bundle), with the cost of the MyFli device coming in at AMD2,000 or AMD1, respectively. Users opting for a non-subscription offer are required to pay AMD39,000 for their MyFli unit.

Orange Armenia, which is wholly owned by France Telecom-Orange, launched its mobile voice and internet services on 5 November 2009, and currently claims coverage of 95% of the population in 600 communities across Armenia.
