DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/f5d8d6/ukraine_telecommun) has announced the addition of the "Ukraine Telecommunications Report Q1 2011" report to their offering.
Ukraine Telecommunications Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, telecommunication associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Ukraine's telecommunications industry.
In this update of BMI's Ukraine Telecommunications Market Report, they extended their forecasts for the country's fixed-line, mobile and broadband markets through to the end of 2015. They have also taken the opportunity to include more realistic historical data for Internet subscribers and 3G mobile subscribers, which have also shaped their forecast trends.
The merger of VimpelCom and Kyivstar as a new VimpelCom unit was delayed until October 2010 and, even then, will take several months to conclude. Data for both companies for Q310 were not available at the time of writing and, even when the data becomes available, may not treat the companies as a merged operation. BMI may therefore need to revisit their mobile forecasts again in succeeding quarters. Turkcellowned Astelit also recorded three quarters of negative growth as it rid itself of unprofitable inactive subscribers. It lost 1.9mn subscribers in Q310, offsetting the return to positive growth reported by the other operators on the market. BMI expects further reductions at Astelit in Q410, so they estimate an overall decline of 0.4% for 2010. Although they believe the market could return to growth in future, BMI continue to expect growth to be minimal, verging on flat. BMI's revised long-term forecast envisages a mobile subscriber base of 56.35mn and a penetration rate of 127% at the end of 2015.
BMI have amended slightly their existing broadband figures for 2008 and 2009 and believe the market grew by 42.5% in 2009 to give a total of 2.28mn subscribers, a little lower than they had previously reported. Data for the first half of 2010 showed equally strong growth rates, aided by increased xDSL penetration and more competitive pricing. Therefore, they believe the market grew to serve 3.209mn subscribers by the end of 2010. Taking into account the likelihood that mobile broadband will begin to come to the fore, BMI forecast a broadband subscriber base of 5.486mn at the end of 2015 with a penetration rate in excess of 12%.
