31 Oct 2014

Russian telco Mobile TeleSystems (MTS) has commercially launched a WiMAX network in the Far East and Eastern Siberia, offering wireless broadband access at speeds of up to 300Mbps, while also allowing the operator to provide fixed-wireless services to corporate clients in areas where there are no equivalent speed fibre-optic links. According to the MTS press release, the new WiMAX network, presumably based on the WiMAX 2 802.16m specification, is now live in Khabarovsk, Blagoveshchensk, Irkutsk, Stones and Artem, with plans to add the areas of Vladivostok, Ulan-Ude, Chita, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Arsenyev, Belogorsk and Angarsk by the end of the year.
