Armenia's telecommunications sector is small but growing. With almost
600,000 fixed-line subscribers for a population of about 4 million
people, the level of investment in infrastructure and new services
has begun to increase. There are, however, major structural issues to
be addressed in the sector. ArmenTel, the country's national telecom
provider, has exclusive rights to the provision of all
telecommunications services, including public switched telephony
services and mobile telephony, in Armenia until 2013. Greek company
OTE has a 90% equity stake in ArmenTel.
