The Public Services Regulatory Commission of the Republic of Armenia has allocated domestic mobile operator K-Telecom with the requisite frequencies to operate a 3G network in the country. According to reports from Telecompaper, the allocation is valid for a ten-year period. K-Telecom is an 80%-owned subsidiary of Russian mobile operator Mobile TeleSystems (MTS). The Russian firm had been anxious to secure 3G bandwidth in Armenia to keep pace with ArmenTel, itself backed by another Russian cellco Vimpelcom, which secured 3G frequencies in the 1929MHz-1935MHz and 2110MHz-2125MHz range on 8 October.
