General Information
Croatia has three network operators:
  • T-Hrvatski Telekom (owned mostly by Telekom Deutschland)
  • Vip (owned by Telekom Austria)
  • Tele2 (owned the Swedish Tele2 Group)

T-Hrvatski Telecom (fomerly T-Mobile) is market leader with the best network and almost 50% of the nation's subscribers. They are followed by Vip and finally Tele2 which has a much smaller network but free roaming on T-Hrvatski Telecom. The two most important MVNOs Bonbon on T-Hrvatski and Tomato on Vip are listed too.

2G is mostly on 900 and some 1800 Mhz, 3G on 900 and 2100 Mhz in the cities. 4G/LTE has been started in 2012 with T-Hrvatski on 800 and 1800 Mhz and 2014 on Vip on 1800 and 2600 Mhz.

 

All three network operators offer so called tourist SIMs for visitors. These offers are only for the summer season of 2014 but turn up very similar every year.
