MTS has announced the launch of a program for the development of a fixed data transmission network in the Moscow region, which will create a technological platform to launch innovative services for residents and

with a population of 50 thousand people. The focus will be on cities where this coverage was insufficient. The choice also took into account the presence of mass development and the number of buildings
high surface, proximity to the Ring Road and a degree of economic activity.
