Over one third of video played on Russia's 3G networks still suffers from stalling

Opera’s cloud-based mobile-video-optimization unit, Skyfire, has found that 37% of all videos that play on Russia’s 3G networks suffer from stalling and rebuffering, resulting in frustrated users and high video abandonment rates. The survey also finds that 28% of videos played on 3G networks in the country encounter significant stalling, defined as stalling or buffering for more than 10% of a video's overall playback time.

It is no surprise that Russia’s 2G networks are even less mobile-video-friendly, according to Skyfire’s findings. Over 96% of all videos played on 2G suffered from significant stalling, and over 99% - virtually all - measured videos experienced at least some stalling.

To conduct the study, Skyfire combined its global data on mobile video network loads with extensive bandwidth test data from wireless network authority OpenSignal, using recent data from 2013 on Russia’s networks.
