Russia sees strong growth in fibre broadband connectivity
The Russian telecom market is the largest in Europe, supported by a population of about 144 million.


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 and St Petersburg, the two largest regional markets.

Telcos continue to deploy and modernise fixed-line network infrastructure to offer improved broadband services as well as a range of IP-delivered content. The government is investing billions of Rubles in a 200,000km telecom network which will provide broadband services to thousands of underserved villages, with Rostelecom contracted to undertake and manage the work.

Russia has also emerged as one of Europe’s fastest growing markets for fibre-based broadband, with about two-thirds of Rostelecom’s fixed-line broadband subscribers being on its fibre infrastructure by late 2018.
The country also has the largest mobile market in Europe, with the number of subscriptions at about 226 million at the end of 2018. Several mobile network operators are active, although the market is dominated by four major operators (MTS, VEON, Tele2 Russia and MegaFon). These have expanded their footprints widely through the acquisition of smaller regional service providers.

Mobile SIM card penetration is high though the rate has fallen in recent quarters as customers reduce the number of SIM cards in use. This is partly a response to the poor economic climate, as also to better pricing among the MNOs which reduces the on-net call charge advantages of having SIM cards from different providers.

The extensive deployment of LTE infrastructure has supported growth opportunities through mobile broadband and data services, which make up a growing proportion of overall mobile revenue. Investments in carrier aggregation and LTE-A technologies have further boosted network capabilities, while operators are also partnering with vendors to prepare for 5G.
This report provides an overview of Russia’s fixed-line telecom and IT markets. It includes information on key regulatory developments, data on fixed-line networks, and an assessment of telcos’ financial and operating performance. The report also covers the mobile voice and data markets, including regulatory developments, the major mobile operators as well as emerging technologies.
