A decision on creating a consortium to run the single infrastructure operator for 5G services in Russia will be taken this spring, according to Oleg Ivanov, the deputy minister in the Russian Ministry of Communications.

Spectrum for testing 5G has already been allocated, according to Ivanov. A single infrastructure operator is expected to enable the industry to halve the costs of deployment for 5G infrastructure.

Ivanov expects a first pilot 5G area will start in the country by the end of this year, while mass market use of the 5G standard in the country is not expected until 2021.
