Kcell Joint Stock Company and Beeline Kazakhstan Sign Network Sharing Agreement for the Joint Deployment of 4G/LTE Services in Kazakhstan

Kcell Joint Stock Company and Beeline Kazakhstan have signed a network sharing agreement for the joint deployment of 4G/LTE services in Kazakhstan. The network sharing agreement is for the joint deployment of 4G/LTE services in all major areas in Kazakhstan over the coming years. It will not, however, restrict competition between the two companies. The two mobile network operators will undertake joint planning of 4G/LTE networks in order to improve efficiency while significantly accelerating implementation of the project and provide higher service quality. Under the agreement, Kcell and Beeline Kazakhstan will jointly roll out a shared 4G/LTE network with nationwide reach. Kcell will build out the network in seven regions: Almaty, South-Kazakhstan Western-Kazakhstan, Atyrau, Magystau, Kyzylorda and Aktobe. Beeline Kazakhstan will also be responsible for seven regions: Astana, Karaganda, Zhambyl, Eastern-Kazakhstan, North-Kazakhstan, Pavlodar and Kostanay. The initiative is based on both operators sharing the 4G/LTE Radio Access Network (RAN) by geographical split, with each operator investing 50% of the overall costs. The network will incorporate the most suitable sites in terms of location, transmission capacity and infrastructure environment in each city, to ensure the shared network provides excellent coverage and service quality. Management of the joint network will be undertaken by a team consisting of representatives from both Kcell and Beeline Kazakhstan. The assets will be owned by the operator that has undertaken the network rollout in that particular region. The first phase will be launched across 13 cities in September 2016. Kcell will launch the shared 4G/LTE network in four cities in Almaty, Shymkent, Atyrau and Aktau. Beeline Kazakhstan will launch the shared LTE network in Astana, Karaganda, Zhezkazgan, Satpaev, Kostanay, Borovoe, Pavlodar, Semey, and Oskemen. The joint 4G/LTE network is expected to cover over 30% of the country's population by the end of 2016.
