Russia Telecommunications Q2 2018

BMI View:

We have made only minor forecast adjustments this quarter as the telecoms market continues to perform in linewith BMIforecasts. The disconnection of over 2.4mn inactive SIMs in 2017 reflects the saturated nature of the Russian mobilemarket. However, this should not deter operators from investing in 4G and LTE-Advanced as there are ample opportunities for themin terms of premium data service upselling. While operators are focused on upgrading networks, they are doing so with a long-termview to monetising demand for non-voice services, particularly video-based content. However, restricted access to foreign-madeequipment and internationally hosted applications will impede these long-term expansion initiatives.
