10 Feb 2014

The Armenian mobile network operator VivaCell-MTS has announced the expansion of high speed dual carrier (DC)-HSPA+ technology on its network. Initially launched in the capital Yerevan last November, coverage is now available in 48 cities and towns plus 567 villages – an area which is home to 86% of the population, Telecompaper reports. Earlier this year smaller rival Orange Armenia expanded its own 42Mbps DC-HSPA+ network to 310 new markets across the country, adding to the five cities where the technology had already been deployed since its initial launch in Yerevan in January 2012.
