The idea of creating the first operator of telecommunications infrastructure in Russia belongs to the founders of Russian Towers Garth Self and Peter Owen Edmunds. 2009 was the founding year of the company, in which it received investments from it its first shareholders UFG Private Equity and EBRD and signed the first contract for the construction and lease of 55 towers.
In October 2010, our first tower was installed and became operational in Tuchkovo village, in the Volosovsky district of the Leningrad region.
More than 200 sites were installed in the directions of St. Petersburg and Nizhny Novgorod from Moscow. These sites have improved the availability of signal for passengers, as well as subscribers who are located at a distance of 1km from the railway tracks.
The realisation of this project, under which Russian Towers leases poles from the city and improves them to accommodate equipment operators, has helped them to display 4th generation networks in cities quickly and to provide high quality coverage in a short space of time.
The company provides services and the sharing of telecommunication infrastructure: it invests in the construction of towers structures of different designs in many regions of Russia, as well as maintaining them with a high-quality service.
"Russian Towers" are constantly expanding the portfolio of infrastructure solutions - in 2014, classical towers were joined by double-purpose pillars based on urban lighting poles, in 2015 - on the basis of power lines, in 2016 - on the basis of urban transport infrastructure.
Russian Towers has 2500 telecom-infrastructure sites in 54 regions of Russia.
