Accordingly, the players increased their focus on new services, combining energy and telecommunications services, and started to cooperate with banks in their product offers. Considering that the worst of tariff cuts is already behind, the revenues in the sector will likely slow down decline in 2014 and gradually pick up in the coming years.
