I am really glad to share the following news. I have reasons to do it. First, my Internet is very slow. Second, my Internet is 3G.
Russian wireline operator TransTeleCom (TTK) plans to launch a fiber optic line in the city of Yakutsk, capital of the constituent republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in December, Alexander Borisov, deputy prime minister of the region, told reporters on Thursday, as cited by RIA Novosti.
The launch of the fiber optic line will help to decrease tariffs on Internet access services and increase data transfer speed in the region, Borisov said. «We have been waiting for a fiber optic communications line to come to the capital of our region for many years,» he said.
TTK plans to test its fiber optic line in Yakutsk in November and start providing Internet access services at affordable rates in December.
Major wireline operator Rostelecom and Internet provider Express-Set now provide unlimited Internet access in Yakutsk for 800-1,600 rubles and 4,000 rubles per month respectively.
«In November, we will see how the situation on the communications market in Yakutsk will change in the near future. TTK’s Internet access tariffs have yet to be finalized. Now we are at a stage of big changes on the Internet market in the region, Borisov said.
