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

The Croatian telecoms market has been shaped by the country's bid to join the European Union, resulting in market liberalisation and creation of a regulatory environment conducive to competition. Alternative operators have entered the market and launched competing services in the fixed-line market.
