The Kazakhstan telecommunications market was worth KZT483bn ($1.13bn) in the first six months of this year, up by 12.2% y/y, according to figures from the country's national statistics agency as reported by Profit.kz.

DLD/ILD telephony services revenues fell by 11.2% to KZT9.6bn.

Three telecommunications operators generate over 80% of all telecommunications revenues in Kazakhstan.
