“Vivacell” To Cover Armenia With Mobile Comm Network Before Winter


YEREVAN, August 10. /ARKA/. The VivaCell company intends to cover
Armenia’s territory with a mobile communication network before winter,
Director General of the company Ralph Yirikian told reporters in
Gavar, Gegharkunik region, Armenia. According to him, the company has
started work in Gegharkunik and will try to cover the entire region
with mobile communication before September. Yirikian reported that
after finishing work in Gegharkunik the company will start working in
Vanadzor, Gyumri, Spitak, Aparan, AS WELL AS IN Vaiots Dzor and in
Southern Syunik. He pointed out that VivaCell retrains from leasing
communication lines of the ArmenTel company, using it only for
long-distance communication. However, if VivaCell expands its
communication network as far as Syunik it will have to lease
ArmenTel’s communication line. Yirikian did not report any information
on the number of VivaCell clients, saying that it is a “good number”,
and the company seeks to increase it.

In his turn, Gegharkunik Governor Stepan Barseghyan pointed out the
paramount importance of the company’s coming to the region. According
to him, communication is one the most urgent problems in the
region. Barseghyan reported that before VivaCell came to the region
mobile communication was only available to the residents of Gavar,
Sevan and Martuni, whereas 15 communities did not even have telephone
communication. Barseghyan said that Gegharkunik is the largest region
of Armenia, and VivaCell will make it possible to keep touch with
communities, enterprises and population.

VivaCell currently covers Yerevan, the Armavir and Ararat regions, as
well as part of the Gegharkunik region. P.T. -0–
