This, according to Dienas Bizness, has allowed it to increase network capacity and provide download speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
Quoting Dmitrijs Nikitins, Baltcom’s CEO, it adds that the company “made the business decision ahead of time to continually improve our service to existing customers – if the internet is stable and fast, no one wants to look for another supplier”.
Nikitins also said that the main problems identified when starting the upgrade were the lack of network capacity and the lack of routers.
Baltcom was established in 1991 and is one of the leading electronic communications companies in the Baltic Republics.
