Extract from this report:

- With the growing maturity of telecommunication markets in large urban centres, Russian operators increased the amounts invested in the smaller towns, but this process has not yet become mainstream. Russian companies are cautious with regard to regional investments, explaining this in terms of the long return period. The regional development of telecommunication networks will speed up as a result of the direct investments of the Russian government. In April 2014 the Russian government signed a RUB 163bn contract with Rostelecom for the development of fixed line broadband in the rural areas of the country. Over 10 years Rostelecom is to build fibre optic lines to 13,600 localities in the country. This project will also allow the connection of smaller towns and will improve overall broadband connectivity Russia.

- 3G mobile telephony technology is being constantly developed in Russia. In 2007 the three largest mobile operators received licences for the provision of 3G services in the country, and by the end of 2013 3G networks covered the main Russian cities in which 76% of the population of the country live. A visible improvement in the quality of 3G internet was also observed.

- In H1 2014 the number of smartphones sold in Russia exceeded the sales of featured phones. The penetration figure for smartphones in the country approached 40% (in Moscow it exceeded 50%), and this created the necessary conditions for the development of mobile internet access services.
