For the first time in Armenia, again: Viva-MTS launches the first in Armenia 5G network in Yerevan
07 April 2023
Viva-MTS announced today that its 5G network, which is the first in Armenia, is now available in the capital of Armenia Yerevan. The launch of 5G goes in line with the Company’s long-term commitment to continuous enrichment of customer experience and supporting the growth of the national economy.
In Armenia, there will be phased-in roll-out of 5G.
5G is the latest and fastest mobile network generation in the world. For smartphone and smart devices users, 5G enables improved performance. 5G will serve as an essential infrastructure for boosting economic activity in Armenia. As everywhere in the world, 5G is expected to support the growth and development of Internet of Things (IoT) technology – millions of devices seamlessly connected and sharing data through a single super-fast network. 5G will power the digital future, as it is an essential boost for the development of digital economy spanning spheres but not limited to medicine, transportation, logistics, AI application, M2M, better use of applications, cloud technology, environment, urban development, smart agriculture and many more. Introduction of 5G will drive the development of the whole ICT sector in Armenia further.
5G is now live in Yerevan City Center, with perspective of extending to whole Yerevan and beyond. Needless to say that 5G is an essential infrastructure for enhancing the reputation of the country worldwide and attracting investment.
Viva-MTS proves another time to be the true pioneer of innovations in Armenia’s telecommunications sector. Thus, back in 2009, Viva-MTS implemented Armenia’s first 3G/UMTS/HSPA rollout. In December of 2010, Viva-MTS launched the first in Armenia 4G/LTE commercial test network thus placing Armenia in the list of top 10 countries of the world. Introduction of 5G is just a logical continuation of the Company’s culture of innovation.
“Viva-MTS reaffirms its status of the technology leader in the industry by launching the first 5G network in Armenia available to our subscribers. Users of 5G-compatible smartphones will have the opportunity to experience all the benefits of the new standard when downloading heavy content, watching and streaming video, using cloud games, or simply distributing high-speed Wi-Fi,” said Armen Avetisyan, General Manager of Viva-MTS. “For Viva-MTS, innovation is by no means an end in itself - we don't need to prove anything to anyone - we just do our job. 5G is our attitude towards our subscribers who deserve the best in terms of services and solutions. At the same time, 5G, like our other achievements, is the result of painstaking and cohesive teamwork and a strong team spirit, for which I express my gratitude to my colleagues.”
Apple Inc. made necessary configurations for 5G-competible smartphones for their respective users to be able to access Viva-MTS’ 5G network. For this, the Apple phone must first be compatible with 5G technology. 5G network is available with iOS 16.4 update for Apple phones. Negotiations with other key suppliers are ongoing.
