Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/05/2014 -- BMI View: Russia's telecoms market is doing 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 3.39mn in Q313, showing signs of slowing growth, but a massive improvement from the 90,000 loss in Q113.
- The latest data release from AC&M Consulting shows there were 21.8mn wireline broadband subscriptions at end-2012, up by 13.5% y-o-y, as the penetration rate reached 15.5%.
- FTTx subscriptions increased to 3.51mn at the end of September 2013, from 2.51mn a year earlier.
