AC&M Consulting recently released statistics on the Russian VAS market. I actually haven't followed these stats for awhile, but what popped out to me was the market shares of each operator and how they relate to Ukraine's market.

I also have never really liked the term VAS (value added services). First, it implies that voice is a low-value service which couldn't be further from the truth for operators in terms of revenue contribution. It is also a very operator-centric term which has little meaning for users.
