The Recovery of Telecoms Revenue in Central and Eastern Europe Will Continue During the Next Few Years, Driven by Handset Data Revenue Growth and Fixed Network Investments

Telecoms service revenue in Central and Eastern Europe will increase during the forecast period, underpinned by a positive economic outlook and driven by mobile data revenue growth and fixed broadband deployments.

The economy in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) grew strongly in 2017 and we expect that the region’s growing GDP will boost household consumption during the next few years. The growth of service revenue in the region will be driven primarily by retail revenue from mobile data. We expect data revenue to continue to grow as the take-up of data is still relatively low (compared with Western Europe, for example). Fixed broadband (FBB) services will contribute to an increase in overall telecoms revenue due to the steady growth of next-generation access (NGA) investments, increasing household penetration and rising FBB ASPU.

This report and associated data annex provide:

  • A 5-year forecast of more than 360 mobile and fixed KPIs for CEE and for 16 key countries
  • An in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries
  • An overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, which highlights similarities and differences between countries
  • A summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.

22. Mobile: the widespread deployment of LTE infrastructure will support mobile revenue growth in CEE
23. Fixed: NGA network roll-out and increasing broadband household penetration will drive fixed telecoms revenue growth
24. Fixed: penetration rates will increase across the region, but the pace of progress will vary due to economic and geographic diversity
25. Fixed: fixed broadband ASPU will in CEE will stabilise in the forecast period due to high competition in fixed broadband segment
26. Fixed: fixed telecoms operators will increase their investments in NGA network deployment and will focus on content offers
27. Business services: key other business services for telecoms operators include co-location and hosting, private cloud, security, SaaS and IaaS
28. IoT: telecoms operators will look for opportunities to their increase revenue streams from the IoT segment
29. Pay-TV: traditional pay-TVrevenue will grow slightly in most markets in CEE, but OTT video to the TV will be the main driver of revenue growth
30. Individual country forecasts
31. Czech Republic: total telecoms revenue recovery will be driven by mobile handset data revenue
32. Czech Republic: the 4G share of mobile connections will increase quickly due to high service coverage
33. Czech Republic: widespread 4G coverage will drive handset data revenue
34. Czech Republic: Forecast changes
