MagtiCom launches LTE in main cities

3 Feb 2015

MagtiCom, Georgia’s largest mobile operator by subscribers, has announced that it launched commercial 4G LTE services on 1 February. A number of 4G tariffs are on offer, ranging from GEL3 (USD1.5) for 30MB (valid for 30 days) to GEL60 for 15GB, with an ‘unlimited’ data option priced at GEL150. LTE network coverage is currently available in Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Batumi, Kobuleti, Poti, Gudauri and Bakuriani, but services will be expanded to other areas in the next few months.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, late last year the Georgian National Communications Commission (GNCC) began to modify radio frequency spectrum licences that had already been issued and/or are temporarily owned by operators, in order to allow for the provision of 4G services. This included the permits owned by Magticom, Geocell and Mobitel for the usage of harmonised radio frequency range (800MHz/900MHz/1800MHz/2100MHz). The duration for the modified technology and service neutral licences is 15 years.
