Bulgaria - Fixed Broadband Market- Statistics and Analyses
The broadband market enjoys 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 mid-2018 about 56% 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.
