The government commission on digital development, the use of information technologies for improving the quality of life and the conditions of doing business approved the “Mobile networks of the fifth generation” roadmap at a meeting of the Presidium.
According to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, the roadmap includes the principle of import substitution. “We believe that this will accelerate the Russian industry and contribute to its technological growth. Achieving the quality and competitiveness of domestic solutions with international counterparts is an ambitious objective, but it is realistic”, - Chernyshenko explained.
According to the roadmap developed by Rostec and Rostelecom, the development of 5G until 2024 will cost $2.6 billion. By 2024, 5G networks using domestic equipment are expected to be deployed in at least ten million-plus cities.
