MegaFon To Invest RUR 110m in Komi’s Digitalization

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 24, 2018. Twenty of Komi’s remotest locations will get stable mobile connection and high-speed Internet access in the first quarter of 2019 thanks to MegaFon; the company intends to invest more than RUR 110m in the constituency’s digital development, the ISP’s press service reports.

The Republic of Komi’s Government and the digital operator MegaFon agreed to invest in the territory’s communications development together. A large-scale telecom construction works will soon be taking place in Komi’s poorly accessible and remote locations in order to introduce better mobile communication services there. 5,000 residents of Kortkerosky, Ust-Tsilemsky, Knyazhpogostsky, Troitsko-Pechersky, and Priluzsky as well as local hospitals, schools, and public service buildings will be provided with reliable mobile and Internet connection.

MegaFon’s engineers will install compact base stations in the area to ensure reliable connection even in low/missing mobile signal spots. The ISP’s network will ensure users’ access to electronic public services right from their homes.

‘The plan is to make sure people in even the remotest locations can feel part of the universal digital space. This is why we worked with MegaFon last year to erase digital inequality and provide residents of Kazluk and Donayel with telecommunications services. This year, the network coverage will extend to smaller settlements (with population starting from sixty people),’ says The Republic of Komi’s Government’s Prime Minister Larisa Maksimova.
