OREANDA-NEWS. The RSPP Commission for Communications and IT believes that "in the current economic conditions" mobile users may experience interruptions starting this summer. To support companies, the commission is proposing a 50% reduction in radio frequency spectrum fees, zeroing the property tax rate, and exempting the income of industry employees from taxes. The Mintsifra sees no reason for failures in networks, Kommersant writes.

From the commission's document on work under sanctions, it follows that the reserves of equipment of telecom operators to ensure the operability of the infrastructure will be enough for four to six months. This may also affect the technological communication networks of railway transport and the fuel and energy complex. At the same time, the capital expenditures of telecom operators will grow from 390 billion rubles in 2021 to 450 billion rubles in 2022, even with a reduction in investment programs.

The only way to keep the infrastructure working is to curtail all development plans and use previously purchased equipment solely to maintain the stability of the network, the commission said in a statement.

The Ministry of Digital Development said that they see no prerequisites for failures, since the performance of a business depends not only on preferences from the state, but also on the decisions of the enterprises themselves, and the business itself receives whole packages of support measures from the state.

According to MForum Analytics analyst Aleksey Boyko, problems in communication networks are possible and can be expressed in a deterioration in the quality of services, including a temporary denial of communication. According to him, in order to maintain the health of networks, operators can partially dismantle already deployed equipment and use it to repair or expand networks where it is more relevant.
