Growth and regulation are central to Balkan telecommunications in 2012
New report analyses markets, forecasts development to 2016
The largest Balkan countries have witnessed double-digit expansion in their telecommunications sectors recently, and growth prospects are positive in several segments due to new technologies. Although the markets in Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania are independently regulated, service providers often operate in more than one of these countries.
