However, the installation of these base stations by operators will begin no earlier than 2025. The timing of the full deployment throughout the country is not reported.

Alexey Sapunov, Senior Vice President for Technical Infrastructure of Rostelecom, said that the conclusion of forward contracts implies the supply of products for a certain time in the future. This will create sustainable demand for producers and guarantee upfront payments.

Rostelecom also plans to bring products to new markets, not limited to Russia, which will increase coverage.

Everyone understands that the Russian market is rather limited, working only on it, it is difficult to build a big business,” Sapunov explained. According to him, they see great potential in the CIS, Latin America and Central Asia.
