December 14, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 14, 2018--The “Russia - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

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. In addition, the report reviews developments in the fixed and fixed-wireless broadband segments, noting the status of the cable and DSL platforms and efforts to increase the reach of fibre infrastructure.

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.
