VIPnet launches 3G - ahead of schedule

20 Jan 2005

Croatian mobile operator VIPnet has launched its UMTS network, the first in the country, under the brand name City Broadband. The cellco’s initial 3G rollout, five months ahead of its announced schedule, covers around 25% of the country. VIPnet’s main rival, domestic market leader T-Mobile Croatia, also holds a 3G concession but has so far not revealed any launch plans.
