New requirements of Roskomnadzor may bankrupt small and medium Internet providers
The draft order of Roskomnadzor, Russia's Federal Censor, implies the most costly and degrading communication method of blocking.
The requirements of the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor), proposed for blocking Internet resources, can lead to the monopolization of the operator's business and the exit from the market of small and medium providers. This is reported by the Vedomosti newspaper with reference to the letter of the Russian Association of Electronic Communications (RAEC) to Head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov and Communications Minister Nikolay Nikiforov.
The draft order of Roskomnadzor implies the most expensive and degrading communication method of blocking - a deep analysis of all traffic passing (DPI, deep packet inspection). DPI equipment allows granting access to part of the site by blocking or slowing down access to others. Because of its high cost, the requirements of Roskomnadzor will lead to the sale of small and medium providers business to large one, experts say.
