The Office of the Commissioner for Electronic Communications and Postal Regulation has issued Electronic Communications Market Statistics with data up to and including December 2023 for:

The data shows that in 2023 there will be a decrease in total fixed telephony connections compared to 2022 by 27,464.

The number of fixed broadband subscribers in 2023 showed a small increase compared to 2022 (7,676, or 2.2%), while in 2023 a significant increase (+15.8%) was observed in the percentage of subscriptions with speed rate ≥100Mbps compared to 2022, mainly due to the expansion of fiber networks of providers and free upgrades to products with higher speeds due to competition. In addition, the small percentage of subscribers with speeds above 1Gbps is shown to be twice as high as in 2022 (2.8%). The average data volume per landline in Q4 2023 was 0.99 TB, continuing its upward trend. The total data volume for 2023 shows an increase of 26.5% compared to 2022.
