Croatia - Fixed Broadband, Digital Economy and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses
Internet penetration in Croatia is the highest in the Balkans region. There is effective competition between the fixed-line DSL and cable access platforms, while there is also a vibrant market for fibre deployments, though still predominantly in urban areas. ISPs have focused on increasing the capabilities of broadband infrastructure and so generate additional revenue through sales of bundled packages and videostreaming services. Digital Terrestrial TV progressed well, with the country among the first in Europe to complete the switch from analogue to digital broadcasting. The migration to the DVB-T2 standard, expected to be complete by 2020, will provide addition spectrum for mobile broadband use.
