Russia - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Growth in the fixed-line broadband sector continues steadily though it has slowed in response to higher penetration. Incumbent and alternative telcos are maintaining their network upgrade programs to meet customer demand for faster services, with an emphasis on fibre broadband and DOCSIS3.1. On a national level, Rostelecom has been appointed as the telco charged with delivering broadband with a minimum service speed to thousands of underserved settlements as part of a government funded broadband program. The company’s efforts have been focussed on fibre rather than copper.

A range of platforms have been deployed for broadband, including DSL, cable and FttP/FttB. Wireless solutions such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX once garnered some interest among players but it has been superseded by Long-term Evolution (LTE) solutions.

Key developments:

Akado Telecom continues DOCSIS3.1 trials; Rostelecom’s fibre subscriber base broaches 7.9 million by September 2017; Moscow City Telephone Network reports having 1.63 million subscribers on its GPON network; MTS and VEON invest RUB2 billion on 4,500km fibre infrastructure; MegaFon collaborates with utility EuroSibEnergo using power lines for fibre-optic network in Siberia; Moscow Metro deploys Wi-Fi across its network; government approves RUB3.1 billion investment for satellite broadband in remote areas; report updates include the regulator’s market data to September 2017, telcos’ financial and operating data to Q3 2017, recent market developments.
