Currently, the number of broadband connections in telecommunications nodes of the production association exceeds 650,000 taking into account the subscriber base of private providers.

Every month the number of Internet connections increased by 5,000-6,000. The decline is mainly observed in the summer.

The transition from IPv4 to IPv6 helps eliminate the problems with the lack of IP-addresses. The providers of Internet services face these problems today. The new Internet protocol IPv6 has a tremendous volume of IP-addresses. It allows addressing many more units than IPv4.
