The state will continue the construction of mobile networks

The authorities intend to continue the construction of mobile networks along the routes at the federal level. They were inspired by positive work experience along the Amur highway. As you know, the three largest mobile operators of Russia back in 2016 listened to claims to the quality of their work during testing by Prime Minister of the Russian Federation of the car Lada Kalina on several routes alternately. After that, they allocated a total of about two billion rubles for construction of mobile networks. In Ukraine, in connection with the installation of new towers, the quality of mobile communications increased significantly, and at the same time, prices for mobile phones fell (for comparison, you can buy a phone in Dnepropetrovsk for the price of $ 50).Now it has become known that mobile operators Megafon and Vimpelk have already participated in the discussion of the probability of building such networks along the largest Russian tracks in the future, but the results of their discussion have not yet been announced.

The current 3G network along the Amur highway, although it works, it is still impossible to unambiguously assess its effectiveness, since it will pay off only after 15-20 years. But it is clearly clear that the country’s economy only benefits from this – such actions are somehow drawn to other projects aimed at developing infrastructure and business. A vivid confirmation of this is the experience of the United States during the Great Depression, when significant amounts were allocated for the development of communications and transport communication.

Analysts agreed that Russia needs to introduce the criterion of the social importance of roads and their individual sections. At the same time, it will be most profitable to carry out construction on a private-state partnership.

Recall that the third generation connection earned on the Amur highway, connecting Chita and Khabarovsk, in the middle of the fall of 2017. 2 billion rubles from the state were allocated for this and the same – from the Operators of the “Big Three”. As a result, 102 new antenna structures appeared along the highway.
