Subject: Re: The current state of the Internet in Armenia
There is no big improvement in general with Internet status in Armenia.
It much less, than we expect. Still all upstream links from Armenia owned
by Armentel Corp, because of the monopoly in telecommunications. Total
capacity of the links is 10Mbit/s, split into three directions:
teleglobe.ca - satellite link, 2Mbit/s; rostelecom.ru - fiber link,
4Mbit/s; ukrtel.net - fiber link, 4Mbit/s. The prices for links provided
by Armentel Corp are too high to allow high speed access to the Internet.
Most of ISPs as well as other organizations are using downlink satellite
channels to improve their connectivity.
Inside of Armenia status is better, almost all cities have some internet
connectivity through two ISPs - Arminco Ltd and Web Ltd.
Dial in, DSL and wireless equipment are most popular connections for end
users. During last two years Arminco Ltd provide also fiber optic links.
Armentel Corp - wholesale NSP, all providers are connected through them.
