The CEO of SWF Samruk-Kazyna JSC, having familiarized himself with the preliminary report of Kazakhtelecom JSC for 2020, noted that despite the difficult conditions associated with the coronavirus pandemic, the company successfully met the main targets, and some of them exceeded expected parameters.
In particular, revenues from core activities of the company exceeded the planned parameters by 6%, net profit exceeded the forecast by almost two times.
The high profitability is due to both the receipt of additional income from new connections and the implementation of the SERPIN transformation program, which allows to reduce operating costs and increase the efficiency of its activities.
The author also assessed the merits of the digital ecosystems of mobile operators Kcell and Tele2, which united all information systems to meet the needs of customers in one application and plan to expand the capabilities of their users this year based on the analysis of the collected data about their preferences.
The new IPTV television platform, which Kazakhtelecom intends to launch in the near future, is also based on the principles of maximum user convenience.
At the moment, Kazakhtelecom is the undisputed leader of the Kazakhstan communications market with a significant share in the mobile communications segment - more than 60%, and in the fixed-line segment, and we need to maintain these leading positions, expanding access and improving the quality of services”, - said Akhmetzhan Yessimov.
CEO of the SWF reminded that last year Kazakhtelecom implemented a large-scale project for the construction of fiber-optic communication lines in rural areas of the country due to which the coverage of the country's population with broadband Internet increased to 99.3%.
He also stressed that after solving this global infrastructure problem, rural residents should have access to all the company's services, including the novelties demonstrated to him, on a par with the urban population. This approach will allow Kazakhtelecom JSC not only to remain the leader in the communications industry in the country, but to become a locomotive for the development of the telecommunications market.
