Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/30/2014 -- Russia's telecoms market has been performing well compared to its regional peers. There is a strong competitive dynamic between established operators, as well as a threat from smaller operators looking to increase their market share in the mobile sector. The fixed-line segment is declining at a slower rate than in neighbouring markets and the broadband market has expanded rapidly. Healthy competition and the demand for coverage provide good growth opportunities.
- There were net additions of 230,000 in Q413, showing signs of limited growth, but an improvement from the 90,000 loss in Q113.
- The latest data release from AC&M Consulting shows there were 23.2mn wireline broadband subscriptions at mid-2013, up by 14.2% y-o-y, as the penetration rate reached 16.5%.
- FTTx subscriptions increased to 3.51mn at the end of September 2013, from 2.51mn a year earlier.
