Five villages in Yakutia connected to optical network
Yakutia 24 TV channel: The optical network covered five more villages of the Vilyui region of the republic.
“Now 5 village residents and institutions got the opportunity to connect high-speed unlimited Internet, the Interactive TV service, as well as other digital services of the company,” says Internet and TV services provider Rostelecom.
The work has been ongoing since September 2019. To connect five villages, branch networks were stretched from the main fiber optic link to settlements with a total length of 20,5 kilometers.
The administrations of settlements, kindergartens, district hospitals, schools, and houses of folk art were connected to the high-speed Internet first. Thanks to optics, the Internet connection speed at institutions reaches 50 Mbps.
In 2019, 276 km of Rostelecom fiber-optic communication lines were stretched across the entire Vilyui region.
