FAS allowed operators to conclude an agreement on the construction of 5G networks

The Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia agreed to conclude an agreement between the telecom operators Rostelecom, Bashinformsvyaz, VimpelCom and Megafon for the deployment of fifth generation cellular networks in the Russian Federation. On the official website of the department, it is noted that it should spell out the conditions for equal access to radio frequencies for all market participants.

The agreement stipulates that telecom operators who will build 5G networks will develop and agree with the antimonopoly authority on the terms of use of infrastructure, sharing of radio frequencies (if it is prescribed), as well as the conditions for the provision of infrastructure for virtual operators. FAS approved the deal taking into account the guarantees provided for access of telecom operators to the released radio frequency spectrum. According to the department, this will allow the provision of new generation communication services throughout Russia.

Back in February this year, the head of Rostelecom, Mikhail Oseevsky, announced that three operators (Rostelecom, Megafon and Vimpelcom) expressed their readiness to unite to solve the problems of introducing 5G technology. Cellular networks of the fifth generation will be built in the range from 4.8 to 4.99 GHz. In other countries, more acceptable frequencies of 3.4-3.8 GHz are used, but in Russia they are occupied by the Ministry of Defense, FSO and Roskosmos. The Security Council believes that transferring them to the needs of 5G is not in the interests of national security.
