Chukotka residents will have the opportunity to use up to 15 GB of traffic at almost three times reduced cost. The region has launched a program to subsidize telecom operators with the average cost of a gigabyte of Internet traffic. The average price of a gigabyte will decrease from 260 to 93 rubles.

According to the press service of the regional government, the tariff reduction will be valid until the commissioning of the fiber-optic communication line. Tentatively until 2023 year.

The program is subsidized by the regional and federal budgets, in the latter for the period 2020-2022 years, 148,4 million rubles were laid. The district program provides for the allocation of 12,9 million annually for the period of its operation. The subsidy is available upon request. Operators of the "home" Internet and mobile operators can apply for it.

For the first time in Chukotka fiber optic communication lines: submarine cable Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky-Anadyr, as well as a cable as part of the Magadan-Chukotka energy bridge. They intend to complete the laying of communication lines in December 2022. The project is evaluated in 7,8 billion.
