MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's top mobile phone operator MTS said on Friday it had signed a $55 million three-year infrastructure contract with Samsung Electronics Co Ltd to help it roll out a fourth-generation LTE network.

Samsung will install at least 3,000 base stations in Russia's north west under the deal, MTS said in a statement.
