BMI View:
Russia's telecoms operators are focused on upgrading networks with a view to monetising growing demand for non-voice services, particularly video based content. The trend for convergence will be slow to gather momentum outside the major population centres, owing to low consumer spending power and a lack of infrastructure. Therefore, in saturated urban markets consolidation will be the main growth mechanism. However, restricted access to foreign-made equipment will prove to be a drain on operators' finances and will compromise quality of service and impede long-term expansion initiatives.
Latest Updates & Industry Developments


- The mobile market returned to growth in Q216, driven by 4G LTE launches in new regions and price competition wrought by MVNOs as well as a stronger Tele2 Russia. Growth was insufficient to offset the sharp decline seen in Q116 and with consumers owning multiple SIMs, real organic growth is difficult to predict.

- MegaFon and Tele2 are proceeding with mobile tower spin-off initiatives. Cost savings would give them greater scope to invest in new applications and services but foreign involvement would be difficult to arrange given the country's increasingly isolationist stance.
