MOSCOW, February 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s national telecommunication company Rostelecom and a major mobile-phone retailer Euroset signed a cooperation agreement.
Under the agreement, Rostelecom’s tariff plans and Internet mobile access modems will be sold through a net of Euroset’s stores in 44 regions, where Rostelecom’s mobile business is represented.
“Euroset’s stores will offer a full range of services: subscription of new clients, tariff plans, receipt of payments and selling of equipment carrying the brand of Rostelecom, including USB modems for mobile data transmission. Gradually the list of telecommunication equipment will be expanding,” Rostelecom said.
“The signed agreement made it possible to fix unified conditions for cooperation with the country’s major cell retailer of all the companies inside Rostelecom, which provide mobile services,” Rostelecom’s commercial director Pavel Zaitsev said.
Euroset has been in the cellular-phone retail market since 1997. Now the company manages over 4,700 shops throughout Russia and Belarus. The share of the company in the Russian market of cell phones made 32 percent in the third quarter of 2011. Earlier, the national telecommunication company signed a similar agreement with another big network – Svyaznoy.
Rostelecom and its subsidiaries offer mobile services of the most popular standard of GSM-900/1800 in Russia’s 30 regions, and Sky Link operator, which is about to join Rostelecom shortly, offers cell communication services of the CDMA-450 standard in 27 regions. Rostelecom’s client base, without subscribers of Sky Link, made 12.7 million as of October 1, 2011.
