Chukotka fiber will be laid in 2019

The project of laying a fiber-optic communication line (FOCL) in Chukotka was approved by the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Communications of Russia. Due to this, high-speed Internet at the first stage will receive 64% of the district residents.

According to the project, which is planned to start in 2019, two communication lines will be laid: underwater - from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Anadyr and overland - Omsukchan - Peschanka - Bilibino - Pevek. The total length of the first line will be 2 260 km, the length of the ground-level fiber optic line - 1 400 km.

According to the press service of the government of Chukotka, the residents of Bilibino and Pevek will be the first to be able to quickly access the Internet. The submarine line to the district capital will be laid in 2019-2022. It will provide 20 more thousand inhabitants of the district with the Internet. The project is estimated at 7,8 billion rubles.
