“If everything goes according to schedule, the necessary equipment will arrive in the country within a month, which will allow the company to operate in the entire network in the parameters of LTE 4G technology”, he said, quoted by the local press.
“We are almost concluding a very important financing process for the modernization and complementarity of the network, the so-called high-capacity fiber optic network”, he emphasized, Jusob added.
