Bosnia-Herzegovina - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Bosnia-Herzegovina considering more spectrum bands for LTE useThe economic prosperity of Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) largely rests with the country’s continuing integration with the European Union (EU). GDP growth has recovered from the slow-down seen in the wake of the GFC in 2008 and 2009, with economic output expected to have increased 3% in 2017. This continues the pattern of steady growth seen during the last few years, though the country retains some significant challenges, not least of which is the high unemployment rate.

The telecom market has been liberalised and a regulatory framework created based on the EU’s regulatory framework for communications. Although Bosnia-Herzegovina remains an EU candidate country, in July 2017 it applied amended mobile roaming charges to fit in with changes introduced across the Union.

Although a number of fixed-line operators offer services the market is dominated by the three incumbent operators, which control 99% of the market. All three incumbents are subject to specific obligations designed to improve competition.

Internet services are available through the incumbents and a number of alternative operators. DSL and cable are the chief platforms for fixed-line connectivity, while fibre broadband as yet has only a small market presence.

The three mobile network operators (MNOs), each affiliated with one of the incumbent fixed-line operators, provide national coverage. Their upgraded networks are helping to support broadband in rural areas where fixed-line infrastructure is insufficient. In addition, mobile data and mobile broadband offers will provide future revenue growth given the limited potential of mobile voice services.

KEY DEVELOPMENTS:
  • Telemach extends footprint by using power utility’s poles;
  • New mobile roaming fees come into effect;
  • Regulator opens consultation of releasing spectrum for LTE services;
  • Telekom Srpske completes acquisition of LogoSoft;
  • Fixed-line voice revenue continues to slide as customers migrate to VoIP and mobile services for voice calls;
  • Report update included the regulator’s market data for 2016, telcos’ operating and financial data to Q2 2017, recent market developments.
