The market is dominated by the western regions where the main cities and economic centres are concentrated. All sectors have been liberalised, with competition most prevalent in Moscow. The former holding company for Russia's incumbent telecom operators, Svyazinvest, has emerged as Rostelecom, with most regional players absorbed into the operator.

The country has also emerged as one of Europe's fastest growing markets for fibre-based broadband. This report provides a concise overview of Russia's fixed-line telecommunications and IT market.
