MTS switches on Russian 3G network

MTS, Russia's dominant mobile operator, Wednesday launched its 3G network in St Petersburg.

According to a report by Reuters, the company plans to spend a total of $1.6 billion on its high-speed mobile network through to 2012, and expects to generate $2 billion in revenues from 3G services in Russia by 2011.

MTS has also eyed up 3G launches in Uzbekistan in the first quarter of 2009, in Armenia before the end of next year, and at some point it plans to switch on a network in Belarus.

A Total Telecom reporter is on her way back from the launch in St Petersburg at this very moment, so look out for more details on our Website in the very near future.
