“Smartphones are gaining popularity among Tele2 users. As of 1H16 the share of smartphones added 5 pps and amounted to 46.1% of a total number of devices registered on the Tele2 network. By no means, this is connected with our large-scale project on rollout of 3G and 4G networks. Most up-to-date services at affordable prices became available to most residents of the country. We believe that a share of smartphones on our network will continue growing thanks to subscribers’ interest to Tele2 Mini and Tele2 Midi.”
