Edinstvo, a company chartered by MMC Norilsk Nickel to lay down fiber optics communications cable line to Norilsk, was awarded with a license from the Federal Service for Oversight of Communications, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor). The license, which was issued in December 2015 grants the right to offer communications channels to service providers.
Within the framework of the fiberoptics channel construction project a high-bandwidth communications channel will be established from Novy Urengoi to Norilsk. The decision to to provide Norislk Industrial Area with an up-to-date communication channel was made by MMC Norilsk Nickel in 2014, hence the chartering of the Edinstvo subsidiary company. The project is wholly funded by MMC Norilsk Nickel.
With the license from Roskomnadzor Edinstvo can enter into contracts with communications service providers that offer services to end-users, and it fully certifies the Norilsk Nickel subsidiary’s right to offer such services.
