Russia - Broadband Market - Overview, Analysis and Forecasts
Broadband has grown rapidly in recent years as incumbent and alternative telecom operators upgrade infrastructure as part of a general trend of migrating beyond voice-centric offerings to voice, broadband and convergence services. The relatively poor quality or lack of existing infrastructure has resulted in a variety of technology platforms deployed for broadband including xDSL, cable and FttH/FttB. Wireless solutions such as WiFi and WiMAX garnered much interest initially, though one of the main players Yota is abandoning WiMAX in favour of long-term evolution. The cooperation of three major mobile network operators and Rostelecom to deploy long-term evolution on Yota's infrastructure will be a catalyst for significant mobile broadband uptake in coming years
Broadband diffusion is providing the basis on which a promising internet society is emerging, with much potential for future commercial, government and social services. This report offers a concise overview of Russia's rapidly developing broadband market in 2011, providing an overview of major players, technology platforms, statistics and broadband subscriber forecasts for 2010-2013 and 2020.

Russia - Mobile Market - Overview and Statistics
Russia possesses the largest mobile market in Europe. A number of mobile network operators offer services although the market is dominated by three major operators (MTS, VimpelCom and MegaFon), which have expanded nationally through acquisitions of smaller regional service providers. Competition in the key markets of Moscow and St Petersburg is fierce, due to higher concentration of wealth in the two cities. Russia's recent economic woes, due to the global financial crisis, have impacted growth although growth is expected to pick up again in line with the overall economy. Mobile SIM card penetration has surpassed 150% although actual mobile user penetration is lower. Deployment of WCDMA/HSDPA network presents a new growth opportunity through the offering of mobile broadband services.
