In a press release issued today, Telecom Armenia announced that on 1 May it is replacing the Beeline trademark with the new Team Telecom Armenia brand. The change marks the culmination of a rebranding process that started in October 2020 when it struck a deal to acquire 100% of the shares of VEON Armenia (formerly VimpelCom) that had traded under the Beeline banner in the country.
Running alongside the rebranding, meanwhile, Telecom Armenia noted that it is continuing the build-out of a Next Generation Network (NGN) with peak 25Gbps speeds, based on 25G-PON technology. The NGN network is already available in the districts of Davtashen and Arabkir in the capital Yerevan, as well as in the towns of Kajaran, Jermuk and Gndevaz. In addition, in recent months, the company has also extended 4G LTE coverage to a further 14 towns and 65 smaller communities, deploying 80 or so base transceiver stations.
