28 January 2013 |
The controversial trans-Arctic Polarnet project has received a boost after a funding agreement was reached between Russia’s telecoms ministry and the government, Izvestia.ru reports.
The 17,000km cable project was first announced over a decade ago and the most recent update was publicised in October 2011 when it received the backing of the Governmental Commission for Federal Communications and Technological Issues.
