Russia's VimpleCom Launches 3G, "Beeline" Corporate Services

VimpelCom announced the commercial launch of a 3G network in certain Russian regions, including the cities of Saint Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara and Chelyabinsk. The networks currently cover the central and some of the most densely populated districts in these cities, and VimpelCom expects that during 2008 coverage will be extended to bedroom communities.

VimpelCom is offering seven tariff plans to accommodate a wide range of users. The company said it plans to launch 3G networks in around 40 cities by the end of 2008.

In addition, VimpelCom announced the launch of its "Beeline Business" brand for the Russian corporate market. All the products and services provided to corporate clients by Golden Telecom and Corbina Telecom will be offered under the new single brand.

"The launch of ‘Beeline Business' means that we are an integrated operator which provides its clients with a wide range of telecom solutions. Business customers will soon find it natural to receive different types of communications services from one vendor that will help to make their business more successful", said Jean-Pierre Vandromme, the Executive Vice President for Russian Operations of VimpelCom.http://www.vimpelcom.com
