MTS dials on an intercitythe cellular company of MTS Largest in Russia has submitted in “ Rossvjaznadzor “ the demand for reception of the licence for rendering of services of a long-distance communication. MTS - already the second cellular operator in Russia which addresses for such licence, - in the end of the last year to render long-distance communication service has received the right “ Vympelcom “. Experts are convinced that cellular operators are not going to change the business - model, - they expect to save on the long-distance traffic, transferring it on own networks.
that representatives of MTS have made an application on reception of the licence for rendering of services of a long-distance communication, head " yesterday has declared; Rossvjaznadzora “ Valery Bugaenko. “ All documents given by the company in a full order, - were declared by him. - the decision will be accepted within 90 days from the date of application “. The application fact have confirmed yesterday and in the company of MTS. “ Really, we have made an application on reception of the licence for a long-distance communication, - has declared yesterday a press - the secretary of MTS Galina Istratova. - Reception of this licence will help us to optimise expenses on building of an infrastructure of a network and to reduce operational costs. The further development of networks mobile and a fixed-line telephony will be carried out together with other companies ` Systems - a Telecom ` “.
MTS - already the second cellular company from “ the big three “ which has made an application on reception of the licence for rendering of services of a long-distance communication. On December, 27th such licence has received “ Vympelcom “. In the company do not hide that not company exit on the new market, and possibility of creation of own All-Russia network to save on transfer of the long-distance and international traffic was the purpose of reception of the licence.
experts adhere to the same point of view also. “ Expenses of the cellular companies on payment of intercamera services in the traffic admission exceed some hundreds millions dollars a year, - the analyst ` marks Kominfo - Consulting ` Evgenie Solomatin. - Thus on operators ` the big three ` 90 % of this sum are necessary. It turns out that separately such company as MTS, can pay to $100 million a year for the traffic admission on networks of operators of a long-distance communication, such, as MTT, ` Rostelecom ` and the local companies of telecommunication “. Mister Solomatin notices that licence reception manages to cellular operators cheaply, - in total expenses do not exceed $10 - 20 thousand And economy at building of own network can appear essential.
these calculations are confirmed also with other experts. “ if to build the All-Russia network of a long-distance communication from zero, project cost can make $250 - 300 million, - Konstantin Ankilov from iKS - Consulting explains. - However operators already have constructed fragments of this network. It is known, for example, that ` the Vympelcom ` has already laid a cable between Moscow and Samara. So in a present situation of an expense of the largest cellular companies on network building can pay off for a year - two “.
