The Russian and CIS mobile market has seen tremendous growth in recent years. Total
subscriptions in the region surpassed 200 million at end-2006, while penetration
passed 100%. Undoubtedly, the Russian market has been driving growth in the region,
accounting for 55% of total net additions in 2006.

At end-2006, Russian penetration stood at 107%, however figures can be deceptive.
Thanks to the growing number of multiple SIM ownership on the Russian market,
estimates that actual user penetration stood at approximately 70%, which indicates
that some growth potential still in the Russian market.

"With ARPU in the region as one of the lowest in Europe and mobile penetration
already close to 100%, mobile operators will have to look for alternate revenue
streams. Serving the specific needs of the enterprises by creating a delivery
channel for the existing enterprise wide applications like SAP, Siebel etc. can be
an interesting service with newer revenue streams", quoted Vijay Shukla, Country
