Croatian alternative fixed line and broadband operator Optima Telekom has announced that it has recently expanded its ADSL network to Rijeka, Pula, Opatija, Rovinj, Porec, Buje, Pazin, Lovran, Umag and Novigrad. The company said that its ADSL network utilises colocation and its own DSL equipment and fibre-optic lines. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database Optima launched ADSL services over unbundled lines in the eastern city of Osijek in October 2006, using the OptiDSL brand name. By March 2007 it provided unbundled DSL connections in thirteen cities; that month it launched ADSL2+ services in the capital, Zagreb. Optima had around 180,000 telephony and internet customers at the end of 2006.
