Croatia - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

The Croatian telecoms market has been shaped by the country having joined the European Union in 2013, a process which resulted in market liberalisation and the creation of a regulatory environment conducive to competition. Alternative operators have entered the market and launched competing services in the fixed-line market. Both alternative operators and the incumbent are investing in network infrastructure to support bandwidth-intensive services such as broadband access and triple play.
