HT calls on Croatian government to help telecoms sector

9 Feb 2018

Croatian fixed and mobile operator Hrvatski Telekom (HT) has called on the country’s government to do more to promote electronic communications. A report from Reuters cites HT CEO Davor Tomaskovic as saying that the authorities should reduce radio spectrum licence fees, which he believes are among the highest in Europe. The executive also wants lower charges for using public spaces to deploy network infrastructure. HT, which is 51%-owned by Deutsche Telekom of Germany, has said it aims to continue with annual capital investments of at least HRK1.6 billion (USD263 million).
