28 Jan 2014

Orange Armenia has announced that it has expanded its 42Mbps dual-carrier (DC)-HSPA+ network to 310 new markets across the country, adding to the five cities where the technology had already been deployed. Orange launched its first DC-HSPA+ services in January 2012, initially offering the high speed mobile broadband technology under the brand H+ in the capital Yerevan plus the cities of Gyumri and Vanadzor. The footprint was then expanded to Etchmiadzin in February 2013 and Ararat in September. Francis Gelibter, General Director of Orange Armenia, commented: ‘From today, Orange network with up to 42Mbps speed is already available in 315 settlements of Armenia and covers more than 90% of the population in Aragatsotn, Ararat, Armavir, Gergharkunik, Shirak regions and of course in Yerevan.’ According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, by 30 September 2013 Orange had amassed 617,000 subscribers (including 158,000 mobile broadband users) and cornered 16.7% of the domestic cellular market.
