The launch of the Proton-M rocket with the Yamal-401 communication satellite

Today at 9:15 am Yakut time, the Proton-M rocket launched with the Yamal-401 communications satellite of the Russian satellite communications operator Gazprom Space Systems, designed to relay TV broadcasting and communications signals in Asia and Europe in a continuous mode. The satellite is scheduled to enter its working orbit at 12:20 Moscow time.

According to the adviser to the head of Yakutia on a voluntary basis Vasily Yefimov, 99% of the territory of the republic falls under its zone of action, and, consequently, he will fully work for Yakutia, struggling with digital inequality in the region.

Gazprom's satellite provides great opportunities for high-speed Internet reception. First of all, ordinary citizens should benefit from this - it is enough to buy an antenna and install it on the roof to be connected to the worldwide network. ", - explains Alexander Borisov, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). According to him, the leadership of the republic also has agreements on granting preferential tariffs to local operators.
