Belarus Telecommunications Report 2016

Belarus Telecommunications Report 2016

BMI View: Hyperinflation has plagued Belarus in recent years and the recent devaluation to the rouble has made it difficult for operators to affordably source new SIM cards and handsets. International call termination rates have also spiked upwards quite sharply, putting operators under considerable financial pressure. The launch of beCloud's 4G network in late 2015 will allow low-cost advanced services to be deployed, but its wholesale services model could prove unsustainable if third parties cannot afford to interconnect with it.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

Approximately 146,000 mobile subscriptions were lost from the market in 9M15, taking the total to 11.624mn. This was in line with expectations and we forecast 11.876mn by the end of the year as Velcom wins new customers through its data-focused operations

In the wireline arena, triple-play services are beginning to be rolled out. Owing to high inflation rates and the poor quality of Beltelecom's local loop, uptake outside urban areas will be slow. There will be 3.913mn broadband accesses by end-2015, rising to 4.173mn by 2019.
