Telecomdaily reported an increase in the difference in Internet speed in Moscow and the regions

The average mobile Internet speed in the Moscow agglomeration (Moscow, except for the center, and the Moscow region within a radius of 50 km from the Moscow Ring Road) at the end of May was 48.3 Mbps – 11 Mbps more than in 2021, Kommersant reported. with reference to the Telecomdaily report. In 2022, the speed of mobile Internet in Moscow is 2.2 times higher than the national average; in 2021, the digital divide was 1.9 times.

According to analysts’ own measurements, in the Moscow agglomeration, MTS has the highest average speed – 69 Mbps, followed by Megafon – 60 Mbps, Vimpelcom – 33.2 Mbps, Tele2 – 31.2 Mbps.

TelecomDaily CEO Denis Kuskov explained that in the first half of 2022, operators carried out a large-scale modernization in the Moscow region. In the face of equipment shortages and the crisis, operators are choosing Moscow as a priority region, because due to higher tariffs and the level of service consumption, investments here pay off faster.

MTS confirmed the modernization of networks. The company explained that the digital divide between Moscow and the rest of Russia was mainly due to the level of penetration of smartphones: in the whole country, the share of devices with 4G support in the operator’s network is 80%, and in the Moscow region – 96%. In Moscow, there are more smartphones with support for high speeds, so the requirements for digital services are higher in the region and traffic consumption is growing faster.

MegaFon and Vimpelcom also confirmed the modernization of networks in the Moscow region. Tele2 stated that they do not set priorities for improving the quality of communication based on proximity to Moscow.

iKS-Consulting Analyst Maxim Savvatin said that the Moscow region accounts for 25% of the communications market in terms of revenue, the population and housing construction are also actively growing here, the population density is increasing, which forces operators to complete the construction of networks. According to him, the situation in the regions is different, in some of them there may be problems with the replacement of equipment and its planned modernization.
