In May 2012, we were Russia’s first provider to introduce 4G LTE; we also launched the world’s first commercial LTE Advanced network in February 2014 (raising data transfer speed to 300 Mb/sec). On August 8, 2017, we were among the world’s very first companies to introduce Gigabit LTE on a commercial scale and offered connection at 979 Mb/sec.
