Every company in Russia performs its tasks. Someone sells food, someone is responsible for the roads, and someone is responsible for telecommunication services. How many bodies on the Russian territory are the mobile operators MTC, Megaphone, Binaine and Tele2 who are doing their best to fill their pockets but can not solve the main problem that has existed for more than three decades. Until now, many villages in the Russian Federation have no voice communication, not to mention the mobile Internet.
In general, 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks are not covered by 10% of the whole of Russia, and in some parts of the country telecom operators do not want to build base stations because they can never pay, that it is an unprofitable investment. However, it is impossible to leave tens of thousands of Russians without access to modern telecommunication services, so Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided to get rid of cellular operators MTS, MegaFon, Beeline and Tele2, but not directly but partly secret.
Thus, the head of state approved the implementation of the "Sphere" project, in which the country will have its own national telecom operator, with which none of the present can compete. To put it in orbit on Earth, 640 satellites will be launched to cover all 100% of the surface of the planet with a speed net. It will allow you to make voice calls, exchange SMS messages, and use mobile internet at high speed. All of this will be available without roaming around the world.
Moreover, as the new mobile operator will be wholly state-owned, the Russians expect the lowest possible tariffs for tariff plans, which, together with the complete lack of roaming around the world, have guaranteed an extraordinary blow to MTC, Megaphone, Binaine and Tele2 , whose subscribers will decline their services and switch to a new telecom service company. The implementation of the Sphere project, which was approved by Vladimir Putin, will begin as early as 2019, and Roscosmos is responsible for it. A full new telecom operator will begin in 2028, and the launch of satellites will take place in three stages with an interval of several years.
Earlier, it was reported that federal mobile operators MTC, Megaphone, Bilyn and Tele2 will make all tariff plans twice as expensive.
