ANLIM.BR launches LTE-based wireless broadband in Minsk

22 Jul 2016

Wireless broadband start-up, which is run by a group of Belarusian ISPs, has reportedly launched an LTE-based service in the capital Minsk under the branding ANLIM.BR. With mobile operator MTS Belarus already providing cellular 4G services in parts of the country over the infrastructure of sole LTE access provider Belarusian Cloud Technologies (beCloud), Unet’s new service is said to be offering high speed internet connectivity at speeds of up to 112Mbps via a range of modems, wireless routers and antenna installation equipment. Belarus adopted the new Belarusian ruble (BYN) on 1 July 2016 (TeleGeography notes that the redenomination was made at a ratio of 1:10,000 old Belarusian rubles [BYR]), and prices start at BYN9.90 (USD4.99) per month for the ‘Fast and Furious’ 10GB data package with an up to 512kbps connection, or BYN29.90 for the 100GB plan. Further, ANLIM.BR-branded unlimited LTE access is also offered with the Anlim 2Mbps plan costing BYN19.90 a month, rising to BYN59.90 for what it terms an ’unlimited’ speed service, IT.TUT.BY reports.

ANLIM.BR’s website says it was issued with Ministry of Communications’ licence No. 02140 / 1734 on 31 October 2011. However, TeleGeography notes that its website has since been updated to remove any reference to ‘4G’, preferring instead to use the term ‘high speed wireless internet’.
