Ukraine's telecoms market is supported by a population of almost 46 million. National telecom infrastructure is being modernised through considerable investment in both the mobile and fixed-broadband sectors. Competition is provided from a number of alternative operators. Wireless local loop and fibre operators are active, and although the incumbent Ukrtelecom remains the dominant player, the regulatory environment is likely to improve further following the sale of Ukrtelecom to the local conglomerate SCM Group. In addition, Ukraine's telecom market has attracted investors from Turkey and Russia.

The political tension which erupted in late 2013, and which continues, has brought focus to the vulnerability of the national telecom network, parts of which have been subjected to vandalism. In addition, telcos operating in Crimea, annexed by Russia, left the peninsular after their licences were made over to Russian firms. The telecom regulator now assesses market statistics, including revenue, excluding data from Crimea and the separately administered city of Sevastopol. Continuing political and military difficulties in the country's eastern provinces have rendered it difficult for telcos to maintain network upgrades and services.

This report provides an overview of Ukraine's telecom market, including profiles of the major operators, a review of telecom network infrastructure, regulatory measures, and emerging network developments.

Key developments:
New cable to Crimean peninsula becomes operational; MTS and Volia end services to Crimea; damage to networks in the Donetsk oblast; DREAM cable linking Ukraine to Germany and China opens for commercial traffic; Ukrtelecom sold to Epic Services Ukraine for UAH10.57 billion; telecom revenue growth slows to 0.4% in 2013; government suspends talks promoting free trade with the EU; legal amendments to Telecoms Law widens regulator's powers; legislation approved to encourage network sharing; number of fixed lines dips below 12 million; regulator finalising number portability conditions; regulator's market data for 2014; State Statistics data updates; telcos' operating and financial data to Q4 2014; recent market developments.

Companies covered in this report include:
Ukrtelecom, Datagroup, Eurotranstelecom, Beeline, Vega, Velton Telecom, Intertelecom, ITC, Telesystems.
