Bosnia’s Europronet offers unbundled services using BH Telecom’s network

27 Feb 2012

Bosnian internet service provider (ISP) Europronet claims to have become the first operator to offer unbundled local loop (ULL) services using the infrastructure of Sarajevo-based BH Telecom. In the wake of the announcement, the alternative operator noted that the Communications Regulatory Agency (CRA) had played an important role in the development, with the regulator reportedly actively involved in monitoring and controlling the unbundling process. Europronet also claimed that the achievement heralded a step towards the liberalisation of the domestic telecommunications market. Fahrudin Budnjo, Europronet’s sales manager, said of his company’s progress in this area that he expected the introduction of unbundled services to prompt rapid growth in subscriber numbers.

Europronet launched as an alternative ISP in 2005, offering cable-based internet services, and was one of the first two altcos in Bosnia and Herzegovina to offer voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP). Unbundled connections, it says, will initially be available only in Sarajevo.
