The broadband market in Bulgaria benefits from excellent cross-platform competition, including services based on DSL, cable, fibre, WiMAX and LAN technologies. While the share of the market held by cable has increased slightly in recent years, the DSL sector is losing market share as a result of customers being migrated to fibre networks, particularly those operated by the incumbent telco Vivacom. By early 2019 about 65% of Vivacom’s fixed-line broadband subscribers were on fibre infrastructure.

The country has undertaken steps to develop an internet society encompassing commerce, health and government services.

This report provides an insight into Bulgaria’s fixed-line and fixed-wireless broadband sectors. It includes an overview of the technologies, major players, market developments and statistics as well as subscriber forecasts.
