How Much Is The Russian Internet?
April 9, 2015 15:43


It has turned out that the Internet in the Far East, both fixed and mobile, is the most expensive for users, as of February 2015. The cheapest rate for fixed access to the network in this region makes up an average of 600 roubles per month with download speed of only 4 megabits per second. This is evidenced by the data of the annual survey of “Yandex” on the development of the Internet in Russian regions.

Besides, the report of the company noted that the price of Internet access in the Far East was the highest in 2014 as well.

The cheapest and quickest access to the World Wide Web can still be found in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. For example, the residents of the two capitals are offered to pay an average of 300 roubles per month for the access to a broadband network at a speed of 15-20 megabits per second.

As for mobile access, the cheapest option is the Internet in the Volga region - about 250 roubles per month (with the volume of the included traffic exceeding 500 gigabytes). At the same time, the price of Internet access via a tablet in the Far East is again the highest - more than 500 roubles per month (with 400 gigabytes of included traffic). If you compare the cost of the Internet with the incomes of the population, the residents of Moscow win again, while the highest expenditures on the Internet, based on the average salary, are in the North Caucasus (fixed access) and in the Crimea (mobile access), according to the survey.

The total Internet audience in Russia amounts to 72.3 million people, 62 percent of Russians over 18 years go to the global network at least once a month, according to the Public Opinion Foundation. 60 million people use Internet every day. At the same time, the growth rate of the Internet audience remained unchanged in 2014, as compared with 2013: the number of users grew by 9 percent. This happened due to increase of the Internet audience in rural areas and in regions, such as the Far East, St. Petersburg and the Volga region.

The number of users in regions who go online via smartphones and tablets also grows. In late 2014 every second urban dweller used the Internet via a mobile device at least once a month (in inhabited areas with a population of over 100 thousand people). The share of mobile users in the North Caucasus and the Far East reaches 60 percent.
