Thursday 30 July 2020 | 15:15 CET | News

Russian national operator Rostelecom has started deploying a public Wi-Fi network in the Rutul municipality in the Republic of Dagestan. About 15 villages will be covered in the mountainous municipality. Around 77 km of fibre lines have been built for the purpose, with 73 km more soon to get laid down. The work is being carried out under the framework of the federal programme to eliminate the digital divide. 

In the region, 60 villages are currently connected to public Wi-Fi. By the end of 2021, the national operator will build 1,500 km of additional fibre lines in order to cover 250 villages.

Rostelecom has already deployed more than 1,200 km of lines under the programme in the Yekaterinburg region, since 2015. Wi-Fi services have become available in 200 villages of 200-500 residents.

The operator has deployed a fibre network in a neighbourhood of private residences in the city of Kuznetsk and in the neighbouring village of Kazakovka in the Penza region. Around 780 households have been covered there.

Since the start of this year, Rostelecom has deployed 50 km of fibre lines for 100 public and commercial premises in the Republic of Mariy El.
