MOSCOW, December 3 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (ROSKOMNADZOR) launches on Monday a registry of communication services in Russia’s regions. The Internet-based resource contains information on communication services and providers available or planned at a certain location, the Service said.
The registry provides information on 180,000 cities, towns and villages, which is practically on every settlement throughout the country. The Service used its data base and that of radio frequencies’ services.
“It /the registry/ is very interesting and interactive. Any user may access it without registrations and sees what cell companies provide coverage there, how many television channels are available, where the post office is and how many stations a radio receiver should broadcast,” the Service’s Deputy Head Oleg Ivanov said.
The registry will offer a service of the so-called public control, where users will be able to report about misbalance between the data and the reality. Thus, the contents would be updated regularly.
By March of the coming year, the registry will offer information on electronic media and by April – on printed media.
Earlier, Russia’s Minister of Communications Nikolai Nikiforov said a resource of the kind should be available for everyone and would become a mechanism of feedback.
