Cooperation with Russian Railways
Russian Towers Group of Companies cooperates with Russian Railways OJSC, which helps telecom operators to improve significantly the quality of communications along the railways.
Particularly the most demanded routes are the routes of Sapsan high-speed trains: Moscow – St. Petersburg and Moscow – Nizhny Novgorod. Over 200 sites of Russian Towers have improved the availability of signal for passengers, as well as for subscribers who are at a 1 km distance from the railways.
In addition to apparent financial savings, the benefit for operators resulted from cooperation with Russian Towers includes saving time resources required for coordination of operation of different departments with different local branches of Russian Railways.
The total scope of cooperation with Russian Railways covers around 400 sites; this cooperation is implemented in two ways - construction on land plots owned by Russian Railways and rent of antenna mast structures owned by Russian Railways.
