Roskomnadzor closed Yota LTE network in Kazan in a day

On Monday, the Scartel wireless Internet access provider (Yota brand) announced the launch of the first LTE network in Russia, which allows data exchange between mobile devices at speeds up to 100 Mbps. The network was solemnly launched in Kazan, and yesterday it was closed according to the instructions of Roskomnadzor: the base stations on which the Kazan network was built were not registered with this department, and therefore cannot be operated. Scartel representatives did not conceal that the company did not yet have permission from Roskomnadzor to use base stations, but the launch did take place. You can, of course, consider this a successful PR move by Scartel - he staked out the title of the first Russian LTE operator just before the test launch of a similar MegaFon network in Sochi. But this can also be interpreted as a retaliatory gesture addressed to Roskomnadzor, who, at the end of July 2010, withdrew permission from Scartel to use the previously obtained frequencies in 170 cities. The order to recall the frequencies was issued with violations, I am sure, "Scartel", who recently filed a lawsuit in court. And permits for the use of base stations in Kazan should have been received a long time ago - Roskomnadzor violated the statutory period, according to Scartel.
