VIPnet buys Istarska Kabelska

3 Sep 2013

Croatian mobile, broadband, pay-TV and fixed telephony provider VIPnet, a unit of Telekom Austria Group, yesterday announced the acquisition of local cable TV network operator Istarska Kabelska – which it says is the fifth such acquisition it has made this year so far. VIPnet – which also owns Croatia’s largest cableco B.net – reported that the purchase of Istarska Kabelska expands its cable footprint by 7,500 households in the Pula (Istria County) area. Upgrades will subsequently be made to offer the new households the same high speed internet and TV content range as other VIPnet/B.net customers, the group’s press release added.
