Khabarovsk farmers do not contribute to the conduct of the Internet in the villages

In the Khabarovsk region, six villages remain without high-speed Internet and high-quality cellular communications. According to Evgeny Torgashin, director of the Khabarovsk branch of OJSC Rostelecom, this is due to the fact that there is a large number of land plots in the region, the owners of which demand huge amounts of compensation for laying cables through their sites.

In turn, farmers say that the losses that entail any construction work on their land, and the compensation offered by the contractor are not equivalent.

“Taking care of the soil in our area is very difficult, and construction work even on a small plot means a ruined harvest for the entire season. And the owners are often compensated for the damage in such an amount that in no way covers the costs of sowing. We are not opposed to high-quality Internet in our homes. But farming is what feeds us and our families. And if we somehow survive without the Internet, then we will not live without food, ”said one of the land owners Sergei Prilepin.

Today, three villages have access to broadband internet in the Khabarovsk district: Druzhba, Galkino and Ilyinka. The next in line is the village Bychikha, where high-speed Internet is planned to be connected by the end of May.
