Kosovos regulator issues spectrum to boost mobile broadbandKosovo has benefited from financial and regulatory assistance as part of the EU pre-accession process. The EU remains Kosovos 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 countrys telecom sector has been liberalised, with legislation introduced in late 2012 to align with the EUs 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.
Broadband penetration in Kosovo is developing, though slowly. There is effective competition between the main cable and DSL operators, though as yet there is little progress with the expansion of fibre networks: investment by the incumbent PTK in building out an upgraded fibre-based NGN has been insufficient thus far. Although there are a number of smaller ISPs the sector is dominated by only three players: PTK, Ipko and Kujtesa. Cable accounts for the majority of broadband connections.
The mobile sector accounts for most telecom lines for voice services, as well as the greater part of telecom revenue. Two MNOs compete with two MVNOs, though the latter have a very small market presence. The prepaid sector accounts for the vast majority of subscribers, but it is gradually losing ground as more contract subscribers sign up for services. 3G services were launched as late as December 2013, while LTE infrastructure remains limited. However, on the back of expanding LTE networks developing mobile data services will become increasingly important in coming years as a source of new revenue growth for operators.
