5G regulation and law in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Information current as of 1 January 2020

What is the state of 5G deployment in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

5G is not available in Bosnia and Herzegovina yet, and we have no official or unofficial information on when it will be available. This is because the 4G network became available only recently – on 8 May 2019 – therefore the next step towards 5G is not expected to come soon.

Which telcos and communications players are launching 5G services?

Please see above. None yet, but Mtel, HT Eronet and BH Telecom are the biggest operators and were the first to launch 4G.

Are there any public tenders for spectrum licences?

No.

Has there been any comment on when there might be?

No.

What has the government said regarding spectrum licences for commercial use?

We have no official information following 4G implementation on 8 May 2019.

Are the rules for 5G already drafted, and if so, what do they say?

The rules for 5G are not yet drafted.
