Rostelecom boss buoyed by development prospects in Armenia

23 Sep 2014

Alexander Rogovoy, executive vice president of Russian group Rostelecom which owns Armenian altnet GNC-ALFA, has told journalists that the company sees ‘glowing prospects’ for its future development in the country’s telecoms market. ‘We see very good development prospects for all our telecommunication services – broadband Internet access, VoIP and IPTV,’ Arka News Agency reports Rogovoy as saying. ‘All the services we offer are highly demanded and attract customers immediately,’ he added, leading Rostelecom to be confident of its opportunities when expanding its range of services in future. According to the official, GNC-Alfa – which now trades under the parent’s name in Armenia – is currently ranked third in the country’s business-to-consumer (B2C) segment and is working to expand its presence in the nation’s capital and provinces. Rogovoy says that the Armenian subsidiary has more than doubled its subscriber base from 10,000 to 21,000 since the start of this year. ‘We started operating at this market not so long ago, and therefore the number of our customers is not so large, but the growth pace shows that our clients are happy about the qualities of our services, including the offered packages,’ he said.
