Russia Telecommunications Report Q2 2016

BMI View: In a market where 3G services are still being rolled out, the move to next-generation technology is proving costly and time-consuming. Additionally, despite dynamic increases in non-voice service traffic, price-sensitive Russian consumers outside the most affluent markets such as Moscow and St Petersburg are yet to fully engage with premium non-voice services, meaning that regional expansion is slow to yield acceptable returns on investment. Therefore, there is a real need for operators to collaborate to keep costs to a minimum so they can invest more in monetisable value-added services.
