VolgaTelecom was a Russian telecommunications company that was formed in 2002 after the Svyaz'invest Company in Moscow decided to reorganise 72 different regional service providers into seven large interregional companies.[2]

Headquartered in Nizhny Novgorod, the company was one of the largest operators, providing mobile and internet communications in the Volga Federal District. As of the end of 2006, it provided services to 5,123 million users.[3] In 2011, the company was absorbed by Rostelecom — Russia's largest domestic provider of digital services.[4]
