MoldTelecom is the national fixed and mobile operator of Moldovia. Formed in 1993, it provides fixed line, DSL broadband and mobile services throughout the country. It’s 100% owned subsiduary Unite launched in 2007 and offers 2G CDMA and 3G UMTS/HSPA service nationwide.
It is a latecomer to the market with a subscriber base of around 100,000. It’s competitor Orange has around 2 million subscribers.
3G HSPA service was launched in May 2010 at peak data rates of 14Mbit/s.
Unite launched a femtocell service applicable to both residential and business customers in November 2010. A MoldTelecom DSL service must be used with the femtocell.
Given that Unite is an emerging new operator competing with an encumbent with large installed customer base, femtocells should allow them to differentiate and provide the highest quality coverage for those in areas with otherwise poor service.
Available only to existing MoldTelecom DSL broadband customers.
Three optional add-ons are available which provide free or discounted voice and data calls when connected through their femtocell.Available from Unite website
