Croatia’s mobile market is served by three network operators, while there is also room for a small number of MVNOs. The network operators have focused on improving ARPU by encouraging prepaid subscribers to migrate to postpaid plans, and on developing revenue from customer use of mobile data services. To this end considerable investment is ongoing to upgrade network infrastructure, with the incumbent telco Hrvatski Telekom spearheading trials of 5G technologies and services.
Nevertheless, the market during the last few years has been hampered by a poor economic climate which has held back customer spend. In a bid to reduce State debt, the government tripled the annual fee paid by licensees for spectrum, which has led to increased pricing.
This report offers a review of Croatia’s mobile market, including a variety of financial and performance statistics on service providers. It assesses network developments and deployed technologies and examines a range of mobile services including m-commerce.
