By 2030, Russia will ensure the availability of the Internet throughout the country, and in 2021, over a thousand base stations will be installed in remote settlements. This was announced by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
“We are doing everything necessary so that people can connect to the network throughout Russia, including the most distant points. We will ensure this by 2030. And already this year we will install over a thousand base stations for organizing network access in all small settlements, ”said Mr. Mishustin in a video message to the participants of the Cyber Polygon international online training on cybersecurity.
The prime minister called the elimination of the digital divide remains one of the priorities of the state. According to Mikhail Mishustin, this is also important in the context of the opportunity to find a job. “We already see that the number of vacancies that involve telecommuting is growing. Remote employment is gaining popularity, ”he said.
It should be noted that in 2020 in Russia the e-commerce market showed rapid growth, having increased by almost 60%, to 3.2 trillion rubles. At the same time, in June, the association of e-commerce companies asked to limit the functionality of applications preinstalled on Russian devices in terms of access to marketplaces and ad aggregators. VKontakte, Odnoklassniki and Yandex have such opportunities. The association fears that the pre-installation will affect the popularity of these ecosystems and lead to a monopolization of the e-commerce market.
