The Internet audience coverage in the region amounts to about 85%, which is much higher than that of the major searchengines and social networks.

The news service News.Ykt.Ru hosts forums, blogs, current events guide, the biggest classified in the region, regional search and other services. We also support popular Yakutsk public social networks that allow us to provide effective advertising services for the whole business spectrum including large national chains, regional economy locomotives, entrepreneurs and individuals.

Global projects

The Sinet’s flagship project is the inDriver international ridesharing service, which covers 14M users in more than 180+ cities in 13 countries. The order volumes in the Russian Federation and the former Soviet Union countries shows that the inDriver makes the top 3 services along with Yandex.Taksi-Uber and RuTaxi. The service is attractive to users in major metropolitan areas with the presence of key competitors as well as in small townships of a few thousand inhabitants in remote corners of the planet with poor cellular connection and with no maps. Amongst the major ridesharing services inDriver is the only which is operationally profitable.

After several years of organizing "Miss Virtual Yakutia", Sinet also organizes a popular contest "Miss Virtual Russia" and "Miss Virtual Kazakhstan" with thousands of participants and a voting system for millions of users.
