Megafon and Scartel stretch 4G to Far East Russia

23 Jul '12
Mobile operator Megafon has launched 4G networks in Vladivostok, Primorsky region, Far East Russia, sector news agency Digit.ru reports.

Vladivostok is the sixth city in Russia, following Moscow, Samara, Novosibirsk, Krasnodar and Sochi, to have opened access to 4G services. Under plans, by the end of 2012 the operator will deploy a 4G network in St. Petersburg and other towns in the Leningrad region, as well as Ufa (Republic of Bashkortostan) and other regions. As a result, 27% of the Russian population will be covered with the new generation network.

In another news Digit.ru reported that wireless broadband provider Scartel, working under the Yota brand, has also launched in Vladivostok an LTE network providing 4G Internet.

The main advantage of a 4G network is high speed of data transfer and mobile device response, resulting in fast downloading and opening of videos, graphic files and other heavy content. The average mobile Internet speed in Russian 4G networks exceeds 60 megabyte per second, seven times higher than the average 3G speed.
