Golden’s Kharkiv WiMAX network undergoes testing

15 Apr 2008

WiMAX Day reports that Russian-owned telco Golden Telecom has begun testing a mobile WiMAX network covering Ukraine’s second largest city, Kharkiv. Golden’s deputy general director Vladislav Onipko said that the Ukrainian unit is on target to carry out its goal of rolling out 2.3GHz WiMAX networks across six major cities by the end of this year, with 90 base stations planned for the capital, Kiev, alone. In February Golden Telecom was aquired by fellow Russian cellco Vimpelcom, which operates nationwide GSM mobile services in Ukraine via subsidiary Ukrainian Radio Systems, under the Beeline brand.
