FSB has opposed expansion over Russia of the OneWeb — Rambler News Service satellite communication system


FSB of Russia for reasons of safety has opposed expansion over the territory of Russia of the American OneWeb satellite communication system as the project poses threat for national security of Russia and can be used in the prospecting purposes, Reuters with reference to the representative of FSB Vladimir Sadovnikov reports. "Guarantees that the satellite communication system has no prospecting character and won't be able to cause damage to the interests of the Russian Federation, have more declarative character and can't be authentically checked by the Russian side" — Sadovnikov at a conference in Moscow has told. He has also noted that the system will become the monopolist in providing Internet access in a number of the remote Russian regions therefore such regions will become completely dependent on foreign system. "Realization of similar foreign communication systems does unprofitable activity of the Russian telecom operators, especially in remote and sparsely populated areas, and the organization of communication by traditional means — very expensive. It will put a number of Russian regions into complete dependence on these foreign communication systems" — the representative of FSB has told. According to Sadovnikov, restriction of use of foreign global satellite communication systems will also contribute to the development of domestic systems with similar functionality. According to him, the Russian satellite communication system can be created together with India or China. OneWeb is a planned satellite group for ensuring broadband Internet access worldwide. A part of satellites will be at the height of 800 km, the others — at the height of 950 km. Investors of the project are Airbus Group, Bharti, Coca-Cola, Hughes, Virgin group, Qualcomm and Softbank.
