In particular, the altnet is looking to expand its network in the capital Yerevan and extend its services to new regions across the country. It also plans to launch some new products and services, it said. Rostelecom now has 10,000 subscribers in Armenia, Faramazyan added. GNC-ALFA operates modern fibre optical lines with a total length of over 2,500km and covering 80% of Armenia.
