Total fixed voice is on the decline from 2010-2015, meanwhile, Internet revenue will grow steadily. Dominated by broadband services, Internet growth will account for revenues rising to US$6.5 billion in 2015. "This growth will be driven by the increasing affordability and convenience of multiplay bundles," says Sylwia Boguszewska, Analyst at Pyramid. "In order to be capable of providing bundled offerings, telcos are adding IPTV services to their services portfolio alongside network expansion," she adds.
Pyramid projects that fixed and mobile broadband will represent a cumulative revenue opportunity of $42.3 billion by 2015. "In Russia, mobile broadband has seen epic growth, as exemplified by Yota's recently released data showing that its total network traffic for 2010 exceeded 100 petabytes, or nine times its 2009 3G networks level," Boguszewska indicates. "In addition, mobile broadband has emerged as a substitute for fixed access, especially in rural areas. MegaFon, for example, reported that more than 40 percent of the data card modems it has sold will be used for access in the home," she adds.
"The majority of data revenue growth will come from mobile broadband, and Pyramid estimates that connectivity revenue will increase by 183 percent over the forecast period, driven by the planned 3G and 4G network rollouts, as well as growing computing devices proliferation," she says. "Operators have also started to look to increase subscriber spending through Internet-related services, such as Internet TV/music/games/storage," Boguszewska adds.
