The average of only 12.57 megabits per second is much lower than what the European Union’s digital agenda requires by 2020, which is 30 megabits per second for all households in the Union. The problem lies in the old and insufficiently branched infrastructure. Private telecommunications operators have no interest in investing in infrastructure across the country, only in exclusively urban areas.

However, Croatia is better positioned when it comes to mobile Internet. On average, Croatians have faster mobile Internet connection on their smartphones than their neighbours, Slovenes, and even faster than the British, Germans and Americans.
