Belarus continues to exhibit signs of growth across its mobile, fixed, broadband and pay-TV markets, however, the industry remains underdeveloped compared to the rest of the region. This is due to the large involvement of the state in the market, from its stake in mobile operator MTS , its full ownership of fixed-line monopoly Beltelecom and through the creation of beCloud to deploy a wholesale national LTE network. Attempts to sell its stake in MTS have floundered again in 2014, as the price remains too high for the risky business environment. Demand for data services is evident in the market, with 3G uptake growing strongly, as well as moves to FTTH and IPTV. However, high inflation and Belarus' inextricable ties to the Russian economy will dampen the country's growth prospects over the next few years , informing our expectation that the telecoms industry will continue to underperform its regional peers.
