Osnova awarded number block

28 Aug 2014

Osnova Telecom’s torturous route towards the Long Term Evolution (LTE) market has taken a step in the right direction, with Roskomnadzor awarding the telco a block of 290,000 numbers for use with its still-to-launch 4G network. According to the Prime business news agency, the number allocation uses the ‘999’ prefix. Although Osnova has rolled out LTE technology in 19 Russian cities, its commercial launch remains pending, with regulatory red-tape hampering its efforts to date.
