Residents of the remote northern region have been waiting the high-speed Internet a very long time. The absence of the Internet was one of the most urgent problems of Bountovskiy district.

According to Andrey Gladyshev, "Khiagda" Director General, opening of the first line of fiber-optic communication lines is the result of well-coordinated work of the State and business representatives.

"In March, Alexey Sambuyevich came to see our working process and met Vladimir Verkhovtsev, the head of Atomredmetzoloto, the protocol, providing high-speed Internet access, had been signed right there and the project was implemented in less than 5 months later. The project timing is a kind of a miracle. This is an indicator that both representatives of the state and representatives of business trust each other and cooperate", Andrey Gladyshev said.

Rostelecom is implementing a large joint project with the uranium mining company Khiagda JSC to build a fiber-optic communication line in Bauntovskiy Evenkiskiy and Eravninskiy districts of the republic. The total amount of investments is 122.9 million rubles, 41.3 million rubles of which is the contribution of Khiagda JSC. The total length of the new route will be <st1:metricconverter productid="218 km" w:st="on">218 km</st1:metricconverter>. Rostelecom has already constructed <st1:metricconverter productid="127 km" w:st="on">127 km</st1:metricconverter> of the fiber-optic communication line with a capacity of 10 Gbit / s, which runs from Sosnovo-Ozerskoe through Shiringa, Gunda, Isinga and Romanovka settlements. The end point of the new optical communication line will be the enterprise of JSC "Khiagda". The operator plans to build the remaining <st1:metricconverter productid="91 km" w:st="on">91 km</st1:metricconverter> of the fiber-optic communication line from the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placetype w:st="on">village</st1:placetype> of <st1:placename w:st="on">Romanovka</st1:placename></st1:place> to the Khiagda JSC ore mine this year by the end of September.
