Ukraine - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews
Ukraine's large telecoms market, supported by a population of almost 46 million, is being modernised through considerable investment in both the mobile and fixed-broadband sectors. Competition is improving as alternative operators engage in infrastructure-based competition. Wireless local loop and fibre operators have been most active in this area. Although the incumbent Ukrtelecom remains the dominant player, the regulatory environment is likely to improve further following the sale of Ukrtelecom to the local conglomerate SCM Group. In addition, Ukraine's telecom market has attracted investors from Turkey and Russia. The political tension which erupted in late 2013 has brought focus to the vulnerability of the national telecom network, as parts of the infrastructure in Russian-dominated Crimea were vandalised in early 2014, leading to network disruption. This report provides an overview of Ukraine's telecom market, including profiles of the major operators, a review of telecom network infrastructure and emerging network developments.
