Russia - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Growth in the fixed-line broadband sector continues steadily though it has slowed in response to higher penetration. Incumbent and alternative telcos are maintaining their network upgrade programs to meet customer demand for faster services, with an emphasis on fibre broadband and DOCSIS3.1. On a national level, Rostelecom has been appointed as the telco charged with delivering broadband with a minimum service speed to thousands of underserved settlements as part of a government funded broadband program. The company's efforts have been focussed on fibre rather than copper.

A range of platforms have been deployed for broadband, including DSL, cable and FttP/FttB. Wireless solutions such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX once garnered some interest among players but it has been superseded by Long-term Evolution (LTE) solutions.

Key developments:

Akado Telecom continues DOCSIS3.1 trials;
Rostelecom's fibre subscriber base accounting for two-thirds of company's total;
MGTS reports having 1.89 million subscribers on its GPON network;
