Bosnia and Herzegovina Telecommunications Report 2017

BMI View:

Bosnia's fixed telecoms market suffers from a lack of consumer choice as the three operatorsconfine themselves to their regional footprints, though the alternative operator segment is picking up pace.

On the mobile side the MVNO sector is in steep decline, reducing competition and customer choice. Theinadequacies of the wireline networks ensure that usage of mobile networks is high, and the operators havecapitalised on demand for 'good enough' mobile alternatives to wireline by keeping prices relatively high.Much delayed privatisation of - or at least a strategic partnership for - two of the three regional incumbentsshould move forward once the government has completed due diligence on the two operators. Privatisation,lower mobile tariffs and the potential launch of 4G would drive uptake of advanced non-voice services inBosnia, providing operators with greater monetisation opportunities.
