VivaCell received a license for the commencement of its operations in 2004. In September 2007, Russian mobile carrier Mobile TeleSystems ("MTS") – the largest mobile operator in CIS – acquired 80% of the company’s shares. In 2008, VivaCell was co-branded and changed its name to VivaCell-MTS, and later changed to MTS Armenia in April 2017.
In April, 2009 VivaCell-MTS announced the commercial launch of its 3G network on B1 (2100 MHz) which it upgraded to DC-HSPA+ in 2013. In 2011, for the first time in Armenia, MTS commercially launched its 4G LTE network on B7 (2600 MHz).
