MGTS to launch Moscow MVNO in 2014

12 Sep 2013

Russian wireline operator Moscow City Telephone Company (MGTS) intends to switch on its long-rumoured mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) service in the capital next year. As expected, the MVNO will piggyback on the network belonging to sister company Mobile TeleSystems (MTS). The Prime business news agency indicates that the service will be cross-sold to the telco’s four million-plus wirelines users, quoting company spokesman Dmitry Solodovnikov as saying: ‘The users will receive a single account to make paying for services more convenient’.
