Russia’s telcos continue with network investment despite difficult economic climate

Telcos in Russia have continued to focus on upgrading fixed-line infrastructure, with a focus on fibre and with considerable support from the government which is keen to see faster broadband services extended into rural regions.

There has also been considerable investment in 5G, though thus far only one of the MNOs has a licence to provide commercial services. The sector is hampered by the lack of spectrum, particularly in some bands which are commonly used for 5G in most of Europe. Despite this, the main MNOs have signed a network and spectrum sharing agreement with a view to deploying 5G quickly and cost effectively.
