Key Findings
- Mobile operators will feel the impact of the crisis on top line service revenue. Though we expect top line service revenue growth to continue to be positive, our post-crisis service revenue forecasts for 2015 are 5.9% lower for 2015 than our pre-crisis forecast, a $850m impact.

- Given high levels of competition that pre-date the crisis, the Russian market has moved decisively to voice and data bundles, which are helping operators increase adoption of data services and push up smartphone penetration. Operators are offering voice is largely as a complement to data bundles in all-inclusive and/or minute allowances. This practice is encouraging voice-only customers to test data.

- Although the crisis has pushed up the price of certain luxury devices by as much as 70%, demand for smartphone and other data devices remains strong. In response to the crisis, vendors are seeing a shift in demand to more affordable and own-branded devices with the number of devices sold in the under US$300 category growing significantly over the last year. Vendors with a strong focus on emerging markets and value pricing, such as AlcatelOneTouch and Micromax, have done well in the current environment.

- Handset market commercial practices such as reverse subsidies, in place for years in Russia, are now becoming the rule in light of rising retail prices for premium brand devices. These practices arose from operators inability to offer device subsidies in Russia.

- Despite being hit hard by the currency devaluation, particularly in Q4 2014, operators have maintained their pre-crisis capex plans virtually untouched. Strong fundamentals for all four operators, as well as financial measures taken to mitigate the volatility in the price of the rouble, have enabled operators to move forward with planned upgrades to 3G/4G and geographic expansion.

- Russias major mobile operators sound operational performance to date will play a decisive role in their efforts to tackle the crisis and enable them to continue focusing on 3G/4G network expansion and data adoption, despite the crisis.
