WiMAX operator refreshes operational footprint with Samara launch

19 Mar 2013

Wireless internet service provider (ISP) FreshTel, which first launched commercial services in April 2010, has extended its network to Syzran in the Samara Oblast, giving the company coverage of a total of 17 cities. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, after slow initial progress the company’s rollout really hit its stride in late-2012, following the sale of the company to Russia’s Vneshekonombank (VEB) in October that year. The company went on to launch in the following locations in quick succession: Bryansk (October 2012), Voronezh (December 2012), Rostov (January 2013) and Kostroma and Kineshma (both February 2013).
