Bosnia Herzegovina Communications
 
 
 

General

Communications in Bosnia & Herzegovina was well established before the Bosnian war erupted in the early 1990's, the infrastructure included the telephone and telegraph network, as well as a network for transfer of data. The war caused huge material damages on telecommunications facilities. In addition, the administrative division of the country into two entities created a division in the telecommunications sector.

As of 2007, there were estimated to be over 1.065 main line telephones in use and 2.45 million mobile cellular phones. In general, the telephone and telegraph network is in need of modernization and expansion. Service in many urban centres is said to be below the level of other former Yugoslav republics. As of 1999, there were 1 shortwave, 8 AM and 16 FM radios stations. In 1995, there were 33 television stations. In 1997 there were 248 radios and 41 television sets per 1,000 people. Most broadcasts are in Serbo-Croatian.

In 2003, there were 30 internet service providers. Internet users have been increasing since then and in 2007, there were about 1.055 million users.
