MegaFon may launch LTE MVNO operations in Moscow May 10


MOSCOW, Apr 17 (PRIME) -- Major Russian mobile operator MegaFon may start providing fourth generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) services under an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) model based on the network of wireless broadband operator Scartel in Moscow on May 10, when Scartel is expected to launch its LTE commercial operation in the city, provided a source close to a Russian telecommunications operator, RIA Novosti reported late on Monday.

Another source also provided that MegaFon may begin its LTE MVNO operations in the city in May, but some time after Scartel launches its own LTE network in the city.

MegaFon, having signed a deal to provide LTE services under an MVNO model jointly with Scartel earlier this year, is currently preparing to launch such services in several Russian cities, including Moscow, MegaFon’s spokeswoman Yulia Dorokhina said, adding that launch dates have yet to be determined and would be announced in the near future.

Scartel currently provides wireless broadband services in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Sochi, and Ufa, using Mobile WiMAX technology and plans to switch these cities to the LTE technology by September. Scartel initially planned to launch LTE operations in Moscow on April 15, but the launch was delayed due to the fact that not all subscribers in the city had replaced their Mobile WiMAX user devices with those that support LTE technology.

MegaFon is Russia’s second largest mobile operator in terms of subscribers.
