MTS mulls selling CDMA network

5 Oct 2012

Ukraine’s second largest cellular operator by subscribers, MTS, is considering selling or leasing its CDMA-450 wireless broadband network, according to CEO Ivan Zolochevsky, who was quoted in a report from Kommersant-Ukraine. MTS, with a main focus on GSM-based network services, has over 300,000 internet subscribers on its CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev A-based secondary network, but Zolochevsky indicated that a lack of devices in the 450MHz band could be a potential reason for offloading its CDMA network assets, which are estimated to be worth USD200 million.
