Croatian full-service operator T-Hrvatski Telekom (T-HT) has launched new consumer fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) internet packages with speeds of 100Mbps/20Mbps (download/upload) or 40Mbps/10Mbps, for an additional premium of HRK40 (USD7.20) or HRK30 respectively, compared to existing DSL-based user plans, waived for a promotional three-month period. The new FTTH-based ‘Ultra Max’ packages – with a top-speed double that of previous fibre-based packages offering 50Mbps downlink – are available in 15 main cities, including the country’s largest cities Zagreb, Split, Osijek, Rijeka, as well as seven smaller towns. TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database shows that T-HT’s FTTH network development was very slow from its first limited activation in 2009, and by July 2013 it covered certain areas of 14 cities (offering 50Mbps/15Mbps down/upload FTTH connections), but the telco intends to expand FTTH operations via a decision from telecoms regulator HAKOM in June 2013 giving regulatory leeway on FTTx products in selected geographical areas.
