Mobile network operator (MNO) MTS Belarus has extended its in-deployment 4G network to subscribers living in Drogichin and Luninets, and confirmed that work to deploy additional 4G base stations in Minsk, Brest, Grodno, Lida and Polotsk are almost complete. The MNO says the new equipment will both expand coverage and increase network capacity, noting that as a result of its latest expansion, its LTE network now covers all regional and 26 district centres, the Minsk national airport, the ‘Staiki’ Olympic sports complex and the ‘Great Stone’ industrial park.
As previously reported by CommsUpdate, earlier this month MTS extended the reach of its 4G network to the regional centres of Borisov, Braslav, Marina Gorka, Orsha, Soligorsk, Uzda, Cherven and Berezino. To support the rollout and drive take-up, it said that people living in the above areas will each receive a bonus 40GB of data downloads on signing up to its LTE service. The promotion runs throughout the spring and forms part of a push to extend its 4G signal across the Republic.
