Kosovo Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Statistics and Analyses 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Kosovo - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Kosovo Begins Using New Country Dialling Code

Kosovo has benefited from financial and regulatory assistance as part of the EU pre-accession process. The EU remains Kosovo's main trading partner and its main source of foreign direct investment. The economy is significantly driven by trade with Germany and Switzerland, where most expatriates live and work. Remittances from such workers form an important part of household incomes.

The telecom sector has been liberalised, with legislation introduced in late 2012 to align with the EU's revised regulatory framework. It also adopted measures relating to competition and to facilitating the market entry of new players. Nevertheless, poor telecom infrastructure has meant that fixed-line penetration remains low by European standards. Unlike most markets, the fixed-line broadband sector is dominated by new players, in particular the cable operator Ipko, a subsidiary of Telekom Slovenia.

  • Kosovo begins using 383 national dialling code;
