Comstar has implemented a VoIP network solution from Nortel to help accommodate the need for reliable, affordable long-distance VoIP across the entire Russian Federation. Comstar obtained its long-distance access area codes for Russia in July 2008 and has begun commercial operations of long-distance voice services.
Russia is the largest country in the world spanning more than an eighth of the Earth's land area. In a country of this size, affordable communications - especially long-distance communications - is important to stay connected with friends and family. With the new Carrier VoIP network from Nortel, Comstar can provide affordable, long-distance VoIP across all regions of the Russian Federation including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Rostov-na-Donu, Vladivostok and other regional centres.
