Nokia May Not Conquer The World, But Russia Is In Its Hands!


 'Russian apes are afraid of being cut off from the outside world.'

The Nokia and Ericsson brands may not be as proud as they used to be, but the company's move out of Russia will leave a long-term impact on the people of Moscow.

This is because the company from Finland and Sweden controls 50% of the Russian telecommunications system, and the decision to exit the market will affect the connection of the internet network.

According to 5 telecommunications experts, in the long term Russians may face difficulties downloading and uploading including problems with calls being disconnected or failing to connect.

This is because the companies' failure to upgrade and update software for their devices including telecom antennas and fiber optic hardware will affect digital signals in Russia.

Experts added that the affected cellular network would bring Russia back to the situation of the late 1990s with coverage being limited to large areas and rich suburbs only.

It is well known that since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, world powers have begun to impose restrictions in terms of economy, technology and parts involving the daily life of its citizens.

Earlier, Nokia's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Pekka Lundmark insisted that his company would not return to Russia immediately while Ericsson's financial executives said they would comply with sanctions orders.

In the meantime, Russia's Digital Ministry issued a follow-up statement saying the production of Nokia and Ericsson will not affect the country's communications system.

According to the Minister of Communications and Media, Maksut Shadaev, 4 telecommunications operators have signed contracts to spend nearly $1.45 billion to build Russian-made communications equipment.

Among those who have already signed are MTS, Megafon, Veon's Beeline and Tele 2, which is a Russian-owned communications company.
