The K-Telecom company will become Armenia’s second mobile operator.

This decision was taken on 3 November by the tender committee set up
by the Cabinet of Ministers, the government press service told
Mediamax. The tender committee was set up immediately after the
ArmenTel company was deprived of its monopoly in the sphere of mobile
services. The government press service is not saying how many
companies took part in the tender, which gave preference to K-Telecom.

The K-Telecom closed-type joint-stock company belongs to Lebanese
businessman Pierre Fattoush, who owns the Karabakh Telecom Company,
which provides mobile communication services on the territory of the
Nagornyy Karabakh Republic (NKR), Mediamax has learnt.
