Russian national operator Rostelecom has announced that the number of subscribers to internet service over its fibre-optic network has reached the threshold of 1 million in the Urals. They can use broadband at up to 1 Gbps there.

The operator has deployed fibre-optic lines and launched public Wi-Fi services in eight villages in the Novosibirsk region, too, under the federal programme to eliminate the digital divide in villages. It said 628 kilometres of fibre have been deployed under the scheme in the region since the beginning of the year, and 297 kilometres more will be laid by the end of the year.

Rostelecom has deployed fibre networks in the settlements of Verbilovo and Sukhaya-Lubna in the Lipetsk region, too, making broadband and IPTV services available there. Its MetroEthernet network has been expanded in the settlement of Smirnykh in the Sakahlin region, passing more than 200 households.
