Operators are afraid that they will have to reduce the quality of communication

MegaFon, MTS, Vimpelcom (Beeline brand), Rostelecom and Tele2 did in the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications a letter in which they criticized the domestic communication equipment. They will be required to use this equipment from 2023, and they will have to abandon base stations with foreign “stuffing”.

Operators indicated that prototypes of domestic LTE base stations did not show the necessary functionality during testing. They asked the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications to create a working group to “develop a plan of coordinated actions for the introduction of domestic radio-electronic means in existing LTE networks from 2023.” The transition to domestic equipment is one of the conditions for renewing licenses for frequencies used in LTE networks. Operators cannot start field testing of samples, which also slows down the preparation for the use of new equipment.

The base stations are manufactured by the Spectr company, owned by the Rostec state corporation. The government is also considering the possibility of purchasing equipment from Erricson, Nokia and Huawei with its completion for the needs of Russian mobile operators.
