The tests of a new mobile satellite communications set have been completed on the northernmost continental part of the world — on the Taimyr Peninsula
This set allows you to connect to the Internet from anywhere in the tundra or in the Arctic desert within five minutes.
The tests were carried out in a family of reindeer herders on the left bank of the Yenisei River, in the place where the Yenisei flows into the sea.
Gazprom Space Systems tested this set on the initiative of the world famous polar explorer Vladimir Chukov and volunteer Daria Lykova, who is engaged in the fight against the digital divide
— The Gazprom Space Systems Company has its own constellation of satellites, so they managed to provide an Internet channel to each reindeer herder at a price of less than $ 15 per month,” said Daria Lykova
