Bosnia is one of the more challenging markets in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region. Although local loop unbundling (LLU) and number portability have provided some respite to the underlying decline in the wireline market, the three regional incumbents still dominate and alternative operators' customer bases appear to be shrinking. The mobile market, too, seems to be suffering from a degree of fatigue, although the arrival of MVNO Izi mobil in mid-2013 seems to have added a new competitive dynamic.

Additional MVNOs were poised to enter the market in Q2/Q314, putting further pressure on m:tel.
