In 1995, Multiregional TransitTelecom was focused on uniting mobile telecom networks. In 1995, the Ministry for Communications of Russia commissioned MTT with creating a unified transit network for mobile networks working at 450 and 900 MHz, and the company promptly prepared and implemented a large-scale project aimed at the creation and development of the transit network in the Russian Federation.
1995 was the year when the construction of the network that later united practically all the participants of this rapidly growing market started. In 1995 the company signed its first large agreement for the supply of equipment with the Swedish company Ericsson. This agreement included the installation of an automated transit mobile station based on which the network started growing, which in the end united all the local federal-standard mobile players (based on NMT and GSM) of Russia. That year the first transit node was built in Moscow, which ensured a distributed environment for the exchange of information between regional mobile networks. The first subnet united Moscow and St. Petersburg. The company’s plans included the installation of more than ten stations within the whole Russian area to service more than 1 million subscribers, which cost $20 million in total. These plans were completed in advance and already in 1996 MTT’s transit network serviced 25 network operators. This new transit network made it possible to fully use the functionality of the regional networks’ core equipment. MTT gave the operators the ability to provide their customers a guaranteed access to domestic and international long-distance telecom links, roaming while traveling within Russia, transit to a unified billing system and 7-digit mobile numbers, as well as protection against unauthorized access.
In 1995, the company also participated in the exhibition Telecom-05 held in Geneva.
