BTC names its mobile subsidiary ‘Vivatel’

24 Aug 2005

Bulgaria’s former state-owned telco BTC announced yesterday that it has named its new GSM network operating arm ‘Vivatel’. The company said the launch of Vivatel, originally scheduled for April, is now imminent following delays caused by UMTS licence auctions, interconnection negotiations with the country’s two existing GSM operators, MobilTel and Globul, and legal battles over its concession.
