Vivacom to provide 100Mbps on fixed and wireless networks

10 Jan 2012

Bulgarian triple-play provider Vivacom has been authorised by the Communications Regulatory Commission (CRC) to trial 4G technology in the capital. Vivacom plans to deploy a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in Sofia over the next three months. The company expects to use the platform to provide mobile broadband offerings with speeds of up to 100Mbps downlink.

The telco has also announced the commercial launch of its fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) network in Varna, offering speeds of up to 100Mbps and prices from BGN5 (USD3.24) per month. Varna is the second city to be upgraded with a FTTB network, following a rollout in Sofia, where the infrastructure passes some 100,000 households. Vivacom’s FibreNet plans include options for double- and triple-play, bundling fixed internet connections with mobile and TV packages.
