Russia - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Growth in the fixed-line broadband sector continues steadily and though it has slowed the country has relatively low broadband penetration for the region, and so there is considerable room for further growth. 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. This is stimulating the sector, particularly in the migration of connections from DSL to fibre.

On a national level, Rostelecom is 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.

Much of the work to develop the broadband sector is being coordinated as part of the RUB3 billion Digital Economy program, which includes a range of projects as well as a revised legal framework and the elimination of administrative barriers.

Key developments:

  • Akado Telecom continues DOCSIS3.1 trials;
  • ER-Telecom to upgrade entire network to a 1Gb/s service by 2026;
  • Rostelecom's fibre subscriber base accounting for 69% of company's total;
  • 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;
  • Report updates include the regulator's market data to September 2019, telcos' financial and operating data to Q3 2019, recent market developments.
