27 Dec

Bulgarian triple-play provider Vivacom has been authorised by the Communications Regulatory Commission (CRC) to trial 4G technology in the capital. Vivacom plans to deploy a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in Sofia over the next three months. The company expects to use the platform to provide mobile broadband offerings with speeds of up to 100Mbps downlink.

Vivacom  has also announced the commercial launch of its fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) network in Varna, offering speeds of up to 100Mbps and prices from BGN5 (USD3.24) per month. Varna is the second city to be upgraded with a FTTB network, following a rollout in Sofia, where the infrastructure passes some 100,000 households.

All packages offer unlimited bandwidth, Nod 32 antivirus, the opportunity to request a static IP address and an e-mailbox of 500 MB, technical support and installation, all at no extra cost. Business subscribers may request web hosting space of 5 GB. Vivacom’s FiberNet, which was launched in the summer of 2011, already covers over 100,000 households in the capital Sofia.
