This report covers the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, a small yet progressive regional telecom market. It details trends and developments in telecommunications, mobile, Internet, Internet economy, broadband, digital TV and converging media including broadband, triple play and IPTV. Subjects include:
BuddeComm’s Annual Publication 2007 Europe - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in the Baltic States profiles the three countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which are characterised by relatively high broadband and mobile penetration. All three incumbents have managed to maintain or grow revenue despite losing market share to competing operators in traditional fixed-line voice markets. Growing ADSL and IPTV uptake has contributed to their success although they face increasing competition from the region’s widely accessible cable TV network operators. Advanced HSDPA services are available in all three countries, with competition leading to the introduction of affordable mobile broadband access for the mass market.
This report presents a concise overview of the telecom markets in a small but sophisticated corner of Eastern Europe, including an assessment of sector liberalisation and privatisation, together with the key regulatory measures which affect competition and investment. Emerging players in liberalised markets are introduced and new infrastructure deployments covered. The important broadband market is assessed, together with forecasts for broadband growth to 2017 for all three countries based on factors such as network investment, the regulatory environment and consumer demand. The report provides essential statistics covering the broadband, mobile and digital TV sectors, highlighting technological developments and the emergence of media convergence and triple play offerings.

I have both worked with Paul and valued his opinion on many occasions. Following, his many comments on the telecommunications industry has been rewarding and insightful. His reports have always been of value and help guide us through the maze of jargon, politics and defined the real road map of this complex industry.
