is maturing. Penetration of basic voice services, both mobile and fixed, most often either reached its peak and it is stagnant or even already started to decline. In most of the countries broadband remains growing, although fixed broadband connections do not represent so much growth potential as a few years ago and net additions rate is lowering. Conversely, mobile Internet access has become a hot topic. The number of subscribers, using either modems or smartphones, has been increasing dynamically recently in all of the CEE countries. Operators also seek to improve their results by offering bundles, penetrating business market and introducing value-added services.
MTR cuts, implemented by telecoms market regulatory bodies across the region, did harm the revenues of major mobile operators. Still their profitability remains attractive, especially in comparison with their Western European counterparts and they guarantee their owners stable dividends. In this context it should not be surprising that potential investors keep an eye on the CEE region and they are willing to pay substantially for the assets for sale. A most recent example can be Polkomtel of Poland, which is about to be sold and the price may reach as much as €4.5bn, making it one of the biggest deals on the European telecommunications market in recent several years. ”
