Rostelecom hopes to corner 50% of broadband market by 2015

PDFPrintE-mail

MOSCOW, May 12 (Reuters) - Rostelecom wants to grow its share of Russia's fast-growing broadband market to 50 percent by 2015 from just under 40 percent, hoping to offset losses in its core fixed-line calling business. It will also target 30 percent of the pay-TV market and 22 percent of the wireless broadband market in subscriber terms, up from 25 percent and 9 percent respectively, a company presentation also said on Thursday.

The former state-run long-distance call monopoly became a $16 billion Russian telecoms champion last month after merging with seven regional fixed-to-mobile groups.

Rostelecom's board will discuss a long-term development strategy on Friday, and was expected to focus on plans in the fastest-growing areas of the telecoms market, such as fixed and mobile broadband and pay television.

Alfa-Bank analysts welcomed the new strategy, saying it would help Rostelecom focus efforts on targeted areas and compete with the big three telecoms groups -- MTS , Vimpelcom , and MegaFon.

"In our view, the growth potential of the broadband and pay-TV markets is high, with broadband penetration remaining low in Russia," Renaissance Capital analysts said in a note, adding a strategic update would be an important driver for Rostelecom stock.

Rostelecom applied last week to the financial markets regulator to list up to 25 percent of its shares on an overseas stock exchange, while chief executive Alexander Provotorov said it planned a technical listing in London before the year-end.

Analysts had earlier voiced concerns over growth prospects at the newly beefed-up group, citing uncertainty over its mobile strategy against a backdrop of continuing stagnation of traditional fixed-line sales.
