CRA publishes latest telecom sector statistics

15 Oct 2014

According to the latest data produced by Bosnian telecoms watchdog the Communications Regulatory Agency (CRA) there were 3.385 million mobile subscribers in the country at the end of June 2014, up less than 1% from the 3.356 million recorded three months earlier. BH Telecom accounted for the largest share of the total – 44.70%, down from 44.87% at end-March 2014 – while Telekom Srpske and HT Mostar claimed 42.09% (1Q14: 42.32%) and 13.03% (12.55%), respectively. Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) IZI Mobile had just over 5,400 customers at the end of the reporting period, giving it 0.16% of the market, down against the roughly 8,400 (or 0.25%) it had three months earlier. Rounding out the market, fellow MVNO BlicNet, which launched in December 2013, saw its subscriber base increase to just over 1,000, or 0.03% of the market, as at end-June 2014.

Meanwhile, according to the CRA’s data at the end of June 2014 there were a total of 528,893 fixed line broadband accesses, up 2.2% quarter-on-quarter. Both xDSL- and cable-based connections were up against the previous quarter at 298,006 and 164,887, respectively, while FTTx accesses stood at 325 at end-June 2014, compared to 313 three months earlier. Fixed-wireless, leased line and ‘other’ technologies all see declines, however, falling to 63,954 (64,856), 1,310 (1,316) and 411 (440), respectively.
