Vip operatorFollowing the merger of Vip operator with ONE in October 2015, the combined entity, one.Vip, is now the leading operator in the mobile segment of the telecommunications market of the Republic of Macedonia. In spite of this consolidation, competition in the mobile market accelerated with the entry of a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) as of July 2016.

In the Republic of Macedonia, one.Vip’s customer base declined by 5.1% year-on-year as customers continued to move from multiple prepaid to single contract subscriptions. In the fixed-line business, the number of revenue generating units (RGU) increased by 3.2% compared with the previous year.

Total revenues declined by 2.7% year-on-year (reported: +47.3%) due to the decrease in interconnection revenues caused by lower transit.
