More than 2.74 billion $US are offered to be invested. Three years from now. In the meantime, there is no economic network of the fifth generation in Russia currently, and only a small portion of the population of the world will be able to communicate with them by the end of 2024. More than 130 million 5G users now live in the PRC at the same time.

GBP for Russian 5G

The construction of fifth-generation (5G) cellular networks in Russia would entail a massive investment of more than 208 billion rubles. Rostelecom and Rostec wrote this number in the Roadmap for Russian 5G network growth, called “Fifth-Generation Mobile Communications Networks.”

For about a year and a half the organisations collaborated together on this map. The paper was considered on 16 November 2020 in a position to become Deputy Prime Minister in January 2020, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Ternyshenko, former CEO of Gazprom-Media Holding. An undisclosed source close to developers was held on 17 November 2020 to address the current discrepancies. “A Procedure, i.e. the” card “will be accepted in the next few days,” he said.

The sum is 208.13 billion rubles, according to the paper. By the end of 2024, that is in the next three years, investments should be made in developing 5G in Russia. 28,856 billion rubles will be spent in the federal budget. Plus 21,46 billion additional rubles of this number. To develop serial production of domestic 5G equipment it is proposed to include Rostec.

In July 2019 the work on the roadmap starts. The businesses have not clarified why the production and approval of the authorities took so much time.

5G instructions and development priorities

By 2024, Rostelecom and Rostec’s roadmap will meet seven key objectives to construct and improve cellular networks in the fifth century. The first is to install these networks, with a population of one million, in ten or more Russian cities. In other words, not all Russian inhabitants of big cities are likely to be able to evaluate the 5G networks’ capacities even after three years because from 1 January 2020 onwards, there were 15 million citizens of that region. The text does not include any mention of smaller settlements.

The second target in the path chart is to produce by 2024 up to 152 billion roubles and by 2030 – 241.3 billion roubles in capital spending in the development of Russia’s 5G. Furthermore by 2024, 5 million to 50 million users are planned for such networks.
The fourth target is 10,000 base stations deployed by 2024 while Russia’ s share of “hardware” is 30%. Fifth, 20 projects will be implemented in three years’ time on the basis of the 5th generation networks in the major areas of the Russian economy.

The sixth target is to raise the position of 5G-driven solution firms in the global industry to 1.8% and increase domestic revenue to 19.5%. Finally, the seventh priority is for Russia to become a global leader in the development of fifth-generation networks, eighth in terms of role.

Behind big countries Russia lies

As content was released in Russia, ordinary telecom operators’ customers did not have a single fully fledged fifth-generation grid. The State Radio Frequency Commission (SCRF) approved the creation, as stated by undercode, of such networks between 24,25-24,5, GHz in March 2020, while allowances applied to both traditional and specialty – technical and corporate networks. Must be informed that the frequency of 3.4-3.6 GHz is used for 5G in other countries but in Russia it is occupied by domestic authorities’ networking facilities and are not yet able to be launched on consumer networks.

In June 2020, Russia’s Ministry of Digital Industry recommended that 5G networks be postponed in building in Russia up to 2024 and only created on Russian smartphones. Telecom operators quickly rejected the proposal, denouncing the fact that the 4 year wait leads to a delay of Russia in various sectors of the economy behind the world leaders.

The SCRF plans to accept recommendations for re-allocating the frequency band distribution table between radio providers and the use of a millimeter frecuency spectrum for 5G networks, currently assigned to satellite communications, became public at the end of October 2020. The proposed allocation for wireless data transfer is a new range of 48,5-56,5 MHz and 76-84 MHz presently used on analog television

Meanwhile, development of 5G networks is in full swing in many other countries. For example, according to research firm IDC, China will spend around 600 billion $USon the rollout of fifth-generation networks over the next five years, or less than $120 billion at the November 18, 2020 average.

Back in May 2020, the number of active users on China’s 5G networks surpassed 50 million, according to figures from the China Research Institute of Information and Communications. China Mobile announced in November 2020 that 130 million users were connected to its 5th generation networks.

According to the RCRWireless News site, the number of 5G base stations in this country surpassed 700,000 on November 16, 2020. China’s target was originally to build 500,000 such stations by the end of 2020.

Huawei expects that the number of 5G users will hit 20 percent of the overall number of people connecting to mobile networks by the end of June 2021. However in this situation, this presumption concerns China at the same time as South Korea – the second country in the world in terms of the prevalence of the current standard networks.
