/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Armenian government is going to pass the
IP-telephony monopoly to Armentel Company, representatives of the
executive committee of the companies engaged in IP communication stated
at the press conference today. The statement issued by them says, in
part, that the issue of depriving Armentel of the monopoly on
telecommunication services was discussed during the special sitting of
the Armenian government on October 25. However, the sitting participants
were submitted some items, which, in our opinion, expand the frames of
the company, the document runs. Special attention should be paid to the
item, which says that 250 companies registered in the field will have to
break off their activities while about 3,000 employees of the
organizations providing cheap, available and high-quality communication,
will join the ranks of the unemployed.
