Rostelecom lights new fibre link with China

24 May 2006

Russia’s largest long-distance carrier Rostelecom has announced the launch of a new fibre-optic link between Russia’s far east and China Telecom’s network. The link connects the cities of Belogorsk and Blagoveshchensk in the Amur region with the Chinese city of Heihe on the Russian border. Rostelecom said the project was exceptionally important as the traffic between Europe and Asia is expected to triple by 2010.
