11 Nov 2013

Moldova’s leading mobile operator Orange Moldova has expanded its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network to cover 30% of the population. According to a company press release, 4G services are now available in ten cities, namely Chisinau, Balti, Cahul, Ungheni, Hancesti, Calarasi, Ceadar-Lunga, Orhei, Donduseni and Otaci. Orange Moldova CEO Liudmila Climoc said: ‘Orange’s investments are geared toward providing communication services accessible to all residents of the country and expanding 4G network… We are sure that wireless internet access at speeds of up to 100Mbps will meet the demanding needs of customers, and will provide support to business development in the private sector.’

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Orange Moldova was the country’s first operator to launch commercial LTE services, doing so in Chisinau in November 2012, a week after receiving its LTE licence. At end-June 2013 the company had a total of 2.5 million mobile subscribers and dominated the wireless market with a 57.0% share of the spoils.
