5 Apr 2016

Tele2 Russia, which belatedly expanded its mobile network to Moscow in October 2015, has disclosed that it increased the number of base stations in the capital city/region by 7% in the first quarter of 2016 to cover 99% of the Moscow population. The cellco, part-owned by nationwide telco Rostelecom, has also expanded its number of Moscow metro stations with 3G/4G LTE coverage by five to a total of 31 stations.

Also in the capital, Russian regional triple-play fixed network operator AKADO has introduced its first 200Mbps broadband internet service on its HFC DOCSIS 3.0-based cable network in Moscow, upping the previous top speed of 150Mbps. Subscribers wishing to take advantage of the upgrade must acquire the Humax HG100RE-AK Wi-Fi router and pay an extra RUB20 (USD0.30) monthly fee.
