BARCELONA -- Max Telecom today announced it has completed the first phase of its WiMAX rollout in Bulgaria, using the Cisco® Mobile WiMAX technology paired with its access and aggregation solutions. Max Telecom plans to expand coverage to 90 percent of Bulgaria's population by the end of 2009, providing citizens with fast, highly secure mobile access and the latest services. This deployment represents Bulgaria's first personal broadband mobile communications service with coverage now available in ten cities, including the capital city of Sofia, as well as two ski resorts across the country.

"Our goal is to develop a contemporary and highly efficient network that will provide high-speed mobile Internet access all across the country," said Krassi Stoitcheff, chief executive officer, Max Telecom. "The market in Bulgaria is ripe for broadband services. WiMAX technology enables us to offer high-quality, competitive, highly secure and reliable services to our subscribers. To do this, we needed partners who can provide the latest technology solutions. We chose Cisco's WiMAX technology due to its industry-leading portfolio, innovation power and real-world commercial deployments worldwide."

With the rollout, Max Telecom now offers its subscribers high-quality and fast mobile Internet access, voice services, as well as virtual private network (VPN) services over WiMAX. The company recently launched mobile television over WiMAX, so consumers can watch their favorite TV channels while on the move.
