In H1 2014, MTS sustained its leadership in the Russian mobile services B2G market. During the period the number of government agencies using MTS’s mobile, convergent and fixed-line services increased by 35% year-over-year. The Company’s success in the government tenders reflects its investments in the development of next-generation networks throughout Russia, and Company’s ability to develop tailored products for its current and prospective customers. MTS also benefited from an inflow of customers in the government sector as a result of the introduction of Mobile Number Portability in 2014.

In H1 2014, MTS signed contracts with the Ministry of Public Administration, IT and Telecommunications of the Moscow region and St. Petersburg Committee for Development of Information Technologies and Telecommunications, among others. Most recently, MTS renewed its contract with the State Duma which has been MTS’s customer since 2008.

In 2013-2014, MTS installed and upgraded over 1,500 base stations, femtocells and indoor solutions to improve network quality and coverage for corporate and government customers. Over 30% of the upgrades were made as a part of MTS’s investment program to enhance network performance for prospective customers. Overall, MTS remains the market leader in the Russian B2B sector with a 40% market share by subscribers as of Q1 2014, according to a recent report by Advanced Communications & Media (AC&M), a leading Moscow-based management consulting and research agency specialized in telecommunications and media.
