Unwrapping the mystery inside the enigma
Broadband Internet Market, Overview, Analysis and
Broadband now dominates Russia’s Internet market, as incumbent and alternative
telecom operators deploy broadband infrastructure as part of a general trend of
migrating beyond voice-centric offerings to voice, broadband and convergence
services. The poor quality or lack of existing infrastructure has resulted in
a variety of technology platforms used to offer broadband, including xDSL, cable,
FttH/FttB and BPL. Wireless solutions such as WiFi and WiMAX have garnered much
interest, with alternative operators rapidly deploying networks in a number of
regional cities to build up subscriber numbers while fixed-line broadband subscriber
levels are still low. Broadband diffusion is providing the basis on which an Internet
economy is emerging that holds much potential for future commercial, government and
social services. This report offers a concise overview of Russia’s rapidly developing
broadband market, providing an overview of major players, technology platforms,
statistics and broadband subscriber forecasts to 2018.
Russia - Key Statistics
and Telecommunications Market Report
The Russian telecom market is the largest in Europe due to the size of its population.
Its telecoms market is not homogenous due to the concentration of wealth in the west.
All the market has been liberalised with competition most prevalent in Moscow.
Svyazinvest, the holding company for Russia’s incumbent telecom operators
continues to dominate the fixed-line market. Network developments are underway
with incumbent and alternative operators deploying and modernising fixed-line
network infrastructure to offer broadband and convergence services, utilising
a host of technologies including WiFi, WiMAX, NGN and FttH/FttB. This report
provides a concise overview of Russia’s fixed-line telecommunications and
IT market. Information is presented on key regulatory developments, fixed-line
networks and the regional incumbents and competing alternative operators. A range
of statistics highlight the different growing sectors within the market and cover
the fixed-line, IT, Internet access and mobile markets.
Russia - Mobile, Mobile Content and
Applications Overview & Statistics Report
Russia has the largest mobile market in Europe. The rapidly growing sector is
dominated by three major service providers (MTS, VimpelCom and MegaFon), which
have expanded nationally through acquisitions of smaller regional service providers.
MVNOs have also launched services. Competition in the key markets of Moscow and
St. Petersburg is fierce, due to higher ARPU and MOU levels. Mobile SIM card
penetration has surpassed 100% although actual mobile user penetration is lower.
While ARPU levels have stabilised, MOU levels are on the rise, partly attributed
to improved marketing. Future mobile growth will continue to be driven by voice
in the short to medium term until availability and penetration of recently launched
UMTS/3G services is high enough to offer affordable and desirable mobile data and
content services on a sufficient scale. This report provides a concise overview
of Russia’s mobile market, covering regulatory developments, the major mobile
operators, technologies used and mobile data, content and applications, in addition
to a variety of financial and operational statistics.
