The state will spend more than 20 billion rubles on the development of Russian 5G equipment


Subsidies for the development of Russian equipment for cellular networks of the fifth generation (5G) will be included in the budget of the federal project “Digital Technologies”, which is part of the national program “Digital Economy”. This was reported by the Vedomosti newspaper, referring to information received from informed sources.

It is assumed that by 2024 the state will spend approximately 21.4 billion rubles on the creation of domestic 5G equipment. This money will be provided to the state corporation Rostec, which is working on the formation of 5G infrastructure under an agreement with Rostelecom and the Government of the Russian Federation.

It is also noted that, taking into account non-budgetary sources of funding, the costs of creating a base of domestic 5G equipment are estimated at 42.9 billion rubles. This figure takes into account not only the actual development of devices, but also their promotion on the foreign market.

When developing domestic equipment of the 5G standard, the emphasis is on the SA autonomous architecture. Now the share of Russian telecommunications equipment in the domestic market is no more than 8%. By 2024, this figure is planned to be approximately doubled – to 15%.

Alas, so far there are no commercial 5G networks in our country. Moreover, some experts believe that such services will start working in Russia when 6G test zones already appear in some countries.
