Communications in Kosovo
Internet and Phone
Kosovo’s Internet connectivity is among the best in the world. It has a nationwide broadband wireless backbone, which allows businesses and individuals to obtain high-speed, reliable, Internet connections at prices at or below those available in Western Europe and the United States. Internet cafés abound in the cities, making it easy for individuals, including those of modest means, to maintain regular access to email and Web pages.
Most Kosovar businesses and non-profits of any size have web pages, but little has been done so far to establish e-commerce and other forms of Internet intermediation and software services in Kosovo.
The majority of Kosovars rely on cell phones rather than landline telephones. The fixed telephone system has been upgraded since the war and is reliable. Cell phone service is available from competing providers at prices competitive with that available elsewhere in Europe. The three main mobile phone companies in Kosovo are: Vala; IPKO, and Z-Mobile.
