Telekom Slovenije's Bosnian arm Blicnet starts providing mobile telephony services [IntelliNews - Weekly Reports]
(IntelliNews - Weekly Reports Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Bosnia's Blicnet, part of Telekom Slovenije Group, said it is starting to provide mobile telephony services on the Bosnian territory.
With the introduction of the service, Blicnet becomes one of the few telecom companies in the country, which offer all four basic services to its customers - mobile and fixed telephony, Internet and digital TV, Blicnet said in a statement.
News service Capital.ba reported that Blicnet will use the infrastructure of BH Telecom - the largest operator in the country - to provide the mobile telephony services. The two firms signed a deal on the access to the infrastructure in May.
Last month news wire Indikator.ba reported that Blicnet is planning to gain control over part of the assets and activities of local cable TV and internet operator No Limit Technology. This includes acquiring No Limit Technology's main assets, equipment, permits, licences and other rights on the territory of the municipalities Sanski Most, Cazin, Bosanska Krupa, Buzim and Velika Kladusa.
The two firms reportedly signed a letter of intent on the transaction in September after No Limit Technology acquired WNet, a cable TV operator active in the municipalities of Cazin, Velika Kladusa, Bosanska Krupa and Buzim. Bosnia's competition council has said their combined market share after the merger will not exceed 40% therefore they do not need to seek its approval.
The other telecom operators in the country apart from BH Telecom, still controlled by the government of Bosnia's Federation, include also Telekom Srpske, controlled by state-owned Telekom Srbija, and HT Mostar – the smallest operator in country, in which the Federation's government has a 50.1% stake and Croatia's T-HT a 39% stake.
