lifecell sees no problems in buying non-continuous frequency range for 4G
The mobile communications operator lifecell believes that the lots received at a tender for 2600 MHz frequency range are good. The operator plans to launch 4G communications early this spring, lifecell CEO Ismet Yazici has told Interfax-Ukraine.
"We plan to launch 4G for our subscribers very soon, in one month or two, the latest term is April. We have modern equipment," he said.
Yazici said that the operator does not see problems in having non-continuous frequency range, as modern equipment allows using these frequencies and achieving the required width of the spectrum after buying two neighbor lots.
"We know that services of telecom operators in Ukraine are cheap, and the payback period here will be longer than in other countries," he said.
He said that the volume of traffic in Ukraine is actively growing and investment in new communications technologies and new opportunities are required for harmonic development of the operator and the provision of high-quality services to subscribers.
"Average speed we are expecting to have for 4G networks is 50 megabits per second," he said.
