Ukraine’s telecom market revenue hit by loss of Crimea
Ukraine’s national telecom infrastructure is being modernised through considerable investment in both the mobile and fixed-broadband sectors. The political tension which erupted in late 2013 has been exacerbated by the annexation of Crimea by Russia, and by the continuing secessionist activity in eastern provinces. This has resulted in considerable disruption, rendering it difficult for telcos to maintain network upgrades and services. Telcos once active in Crimea left the peninsular after their licences were made over to Russian firms. The telecom regulator’s assessments of market statistics, including revenue, now exclude data from Crimea and the separately administered city of Sevastopol. Continuing political and military difficulties in the country’s eastern provinces have.

Competition is provided from a number of alternative operators, though the incumbent Ukrtelecom remains the dominant player. The country’s sizeable broadband market enjoys effective cross-platform competition. DSL remains the dominant access platform, though cable is also widely available and there has been considerable investment in FttP and FttB in recent years. LAN and wireless platforms such as WiFi and WiMAX exist on a smaller scale. Digital TV is accessible from the cable and satellite platforms, while DTTV has progressed, though not without controversy in the selection of broadcasters.

The mobile market is dominated by the three network operators MTS Ukraine, VimpelCom’s Kyivstar and Astelit, while the incumbent Ukrtelecom’s subsidiary, trading as TriMob, trails as a fourth player. Although the MVNO market is still in its infancy, and few operators have been licensed thus far, a gap in the low-cost sector may provide the opportunity for them to thrive in coming years. Competition resulting from mobile number portability has also been stymied by the regulator having delayed its introduction.

Mobile broadband services present a significant growth opportunity, and have stimulated investment in LTE and WiMAX technologies. The CDMA operators have stepped into this market: having initially offered fixed-line services they have since moved into the mobile segment, launching mobile broadband services.
