August the 29th, 2023 – The popular Croatian A1 has presented its list of new services on offer, and it has made the largest investment in the company’s history.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Tanja Ivancic writes, this year, A1 Croatia/Hrvatska will invest a massive 200 million euros in the modernisation of the network and IT infrastructure. As previously touched on, this is the biggest investment by far since they have been operating in the Republic of Croatia, according to Jiří Dvorjančanský, President of the Management Board.

“We’re halfway through the year, and we have already recorded 152 million euros poured into investments, that’s equal to 280 percent more than back during the same period last year,” added J. Dvorjančanský. He added that the Croatian A1 currently has the largest number of gigabit fixed connections in the entire country, as many as 711 thousand in total, and by the end of this year, there will be 800 thousand of them.

With the continuation of the construction of 150 thousand new connections, by the year 2025, Croatian A1 gigabit internet will be available in more than one million households nationwide, which is 70 percent of all households within the Republic of Croatia.

Extensive research

When it comes to the Croatian A1 mobile network itself, Dvorjančanský explained that with the modernisation and construction of the 5G network, 87 percent of the domicile population has been covered, and by the end of the year, that amount will rise to a very impressive 90 percent.

The Croatian A1 also presented its research, which was carried out by the Kvaka agency on a sample of 500 respondents. “That research confirmed that 91 percent of our users consider a high-quality WiFi signal in the home to be particularly important. In addition, 85 percent of users want the freedom and flexibility to change their TV packages once a month free of charge, while 83 percent of those surveyed want to transfer their TV service to other locations,” said Ivana Marković, chief director for private users. She also added that 79 percent of respondents expressed their desire to try new services without needing to accept any contractual obligations, with the possibility to cancel them at any time.

New Croatian A1 services

Based on that research, A1 created a set of services. From now on, they reported, “a speed of 2 Gbps will be made available within our fixed network with premium equipment that will be installed by A1 technicians. Advanced customer support is available with which requests will be resolved without anyone needing to wait around. The TV service has become portable and can be watched in other locations or on two TV devices. As for our business users, our new service concept will be presented in about a month.
