Access is Golden
I see that Golden Telecom's Moscow WiFi network is set to go live next week. They claim 50,000 signed up for the beta, with 20k active and 6k per day on average. Coverage of the staggering 6,700 access points is claimed to be 800k households, of which the company aims to take 300 - 400k as customers by 2010. Coming only a month after the company's FTTH acquisition, this is looking to me like Iliadsky. I occasionally get mega-uber value readers from Moscow - if you have any first-hand experience to share, then please get in touch.
