Russian Customers Prefer Mobile Web to Wired Connection
Russian customers are slightly turning their minds towards mobile web instead of wired broadband connection, — the recent report of Ministry of Communications.
The number of active subscribers to wired Internet decreased from 27.3 to 26,9 million people in Q2 2016. «Some users disable wired Internet connection for the summer, others use mobile only for costs reasons,» — said Dmitry Kulakovsky, Marketing and development Director of MGTS. However, according to the majority of experts in Russia, the decrease is seasonal.
On the other hand, the base of mobile access subscribers is showing growth. Their number increased by 3.7% to 98.9 million users over the same time period.
