Belarusian Telecommunications Network CSJC began operations in November 2004, and obtained its GSM licence in March 2005. The joint stock company was formed between government-owned Beltelecom, and a now defunct government-owned research firm. In 2008 the company was purchased by Turkcell, with the government retaining a minority share.

    4G Network

    Belarus follows a neutral-host style method of deploying LTE services, where the government as part of their Unified Republican Data Network initiative has elected a single infrastructure provider Belarussian Cloud Technologies (beCloud) to provide the physical LTE-A radio access network over B3 (1800 MHz) and B7 (2600 MHz) bands, which is in turn leased to Life. This arrangement has been in place since August 2016.
