In a market where 3G services are still being rolled out, the move to next-generation technology is proving costly and time-consuming. D espite dynamic increases in non-voice service traffic, price-sensitive Russian consumers outside the most affluent markets such as Moscow and St Petersburg have yet to fully engage with premium non-voice services. This means that regional expansion is slow to yield acceptable returns on investment. There is a real need for operators to collaborate in order to keep costs to a minimum and to enable them to invest in value-added services which can be monetised .
