Ukraine’s mobile operators open up potential of IoT services
Ukraine’s telecoms market has attracted investors from Turkey and Russia and although there remain considerable difficulties resulting from the annexation of Crimea from Russia and continuing unrest In eastern regions, the country has emerged from the severe recession of 2015 and 2016 and this is reflected in improving revenue growth for telcos.

The sizeable broadband market enjoys effective cross-platform competition. DSL remains an important platform though by the end of 2019 it is expected to have been eclipsed by fibre following efforts by operators to build networks based on FttP. Wireless platforms such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX exist on a smaller scale and there is ongoing investment aimed at delivering a national wireless network. A number of wireless broadband licensees have also had their concessions extended to 2025, which will provide greater certainty in investment decisions.

The competitive mobile market is dominated by the three network operators Vodafone Ukraine (owned by MTS and using the Vodafone brand name), Kyivstar (owned by VEON) and Lifecell (owned by Turkcell). These dominant providers have effectively stymied the development of the MVNO sector by promoting their own low-cost subsidiaries. As a result, the MVNO market remains underdeveloped and few operators have been licensed thus far. Nevertheless, in coming years a gap in the low-cost segment may provide the opportunity for MVNOs to thrive.

Mobile broadband services present a significant growth opportunity. Significant investment has been made in extending 3G infrastructure, while operators have more recently concentrated on LTE. Spectrum in the 2600MHz and 1800MHz bands were auctioned in 2018and all three MNOs promptly launched LTE services.
