The Local Network Program was launched last year. This project is Yandex’s solution to the Internet access problem in Russia’s regions: federal and local traffic in the regions have different payment rates and connection speed. In the framework of this project Yandex rents dedicated channels to large cities in every federal region, thus becoming a local web resource for the majority of web users in Russia.
