VLADIVOSTOK, June 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Telecom giant Rostelecom has started laying a 147km-long fiber optic line in Russia’s Far East, which will be fully covered with Internet when the line is laid, Alexei Shchurov, director of the region’s telecommunications department, said Monday.
“Households in remote settlements Plastun and Ternei will get high-speed Internet and interactive television. They did not have such an opportunity before. They will be also able to receive state and municipal services electronically on a common portal of state services,” Shchurov said.
The regional government earlier said that the poor quality of local connection had become one of the main factors restricting the development of business and investment.
At present, Rostelecom’s mobile connection covers about 92% of the populated area of the region, excluding remote and hard-to-get areas. The maximum data transfer speed via the third generation network amounts to 21.6 megabits per second.
