Exact data on structure of owners of Regioncom never revealed. The company was created at the beginning of the 2000th years, but publicly declared itself rather seldom.

In the 2000th the Regioncom company was closely connected with Nvision Group system integrator. In particular, from 2001 to 2005 Regioncom was the CEO Glotov Alexey, one of founders and shareholders of NVision.

Jointly the companies participated in a number of IT projects, for example, executed Research and Development "Creation of an information system of ensuring implementation of GTsP "Electronic Moscow"" in 2006.
