Montenegro’s fixed broadband services are available via a variety of technology platforms including DSL, cable, leased line, fibre and wireless. The fibre sector has shown particularly strong growth since 2010 as the incumbent has invested in infrastructure upgrades, albeit mainly to serve apartment blocks in the main towns. The number of fibre connections increased 24% in the year to September 2019 and accounted for 34% of all fixed broadband connections. The share held by DSL is marginally higher, a legacy of the incumbent’s copper network coupled with its existing market presence and range of service offerings that include broadband TV, but it is falling steadily.
Mobile penetration is particularly high, though this is partly due to the significant number of tourists visiting the country seasonally, as also to the popularity of subscribers having multiple prepaid cards. Networks are based on WCDMA/HSPA and LTE technologies support a vibrant mobile broadband services sector. The wide availability of LTE has made mobile broadband a viable alternative to fixed-line broadband in many rural areas. Recent multi-band spectrum auctions stipulated that mobile broadband services were to be made available to 95% of the population by mid-2018. An auction for spectrum in the 700MHz band, being coordinated with Albania, will support the launch of 5G services anticipated by the end of 2020.
