IDC claims Orange’s 4G network interferes with its LTE signal

4 Jan 2017

InterDnestrCom (IDC), the main telecoms provider in the breakaway region of Transnistria (also known as Trans-Dniester), has revealed that the LTE network operated by Moldovan cellco Orange is interfering with its own 4G signal along the border between Moldova and the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Republic. IDC claimed in a press release that in 2015 Orange Moldova launched LTE services in the 800MHz band – which IDC has been using for its respective 4G service since 2012 – without taking into account agreements proposed by IDC. The Transnistrian operator said that the signal interference could erode the quality of services close to the border, though it is currently working to minimise the consequences.
