The Governor of the Magadan Region insists on the speedy elimination of the "digital inequality"

Governor of Magadan region Vladimir Pechenyi insists on the speedy elimination of digital inequality, which can be called one of the main problems of Kolyma, the press service of the head of the region reports.

"State support for evenly providing Russians with high-speed Internet is critical. Without such support, we will have white spots on our territory, whose residents will live beyond the digital divide, they will receive much less services that are familiar to us, residents of capitals and large cities, said Leonid Delitsyn, an IT analyst at FINAM GLOBAL, “The market will not be able to resolve these issues, because, from the market's point of view, it is commercially unattractive.

For the market, large cities with a multimillion population and a high density of population in the vicinity are commercially attractive. A remote region with a relatively small population, of course, is not of great commercial interest. At the very least, it will definitely not be a top priority for companies. Accordingly, this is the case when the state should take care of its citizens. "

Multimedia services are necessary in all spheres. The head of Kolyma has already secured the support of President Vladimir Putin and the Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolai Nikiforov to improve the infrastructure of the region.

"Kolyma is on the verge of rapid economic development. It is impossible without the creation of infrastructure, including the emergence of high-tech means of communication," Vladimir Pechenyi is convinced.
