In the sparsely populated areas of Primorsky Krai will come the Internet

Until the end of the year 2016 in Primorye will be the implementation of the state program to eliminate the digital divide. The Internet will appear in all the villages of the region, even where there are very few residents. In those towns where fiber is not stretched, Wi-Fi will be distributed.

Specialists of the Department of Informatization and Telecommunications of the Primorsky Territory said that the fiber-optic lines will lead to cities and villages with a population of more than 250 people. The Federal Communications Agency and Rostelecom have signed an agreement for the construction of such communication lines and VSAT satellite stations.

Now 122 settlements in the region are unable to provide the population with broadband Internet access. However, by the end of 2016, the Internet will appear in these territories. In the villages where there is no opportunity to extend the "optics", satellite VSAT stations will be installed, public access points and Wi-Fi access points will be organized.

Vladimir Miklushevsky, the governor of Primorye, repeatedly made statements on the need to provide low-populated areas of the region with telephone and Internet access. The head of the region promised to solve the problem by stimulating the arrival of cellular networks in the region by organizing government procurement of the Internet or by connecting via satellite channels.
