Following the successful establishment of United Fiber in Greece in 2021, United Group has continued to bundle its EU based (Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovenia) fixed infrastructure asset portfolio under the United Fiber brand, UG announced.

Beginning with the registration of the newly established company in Slovenia in March 2024, which will be followed by Bulgaria and Croatia by the end of this year, the Group is focused on further accelerating and strengthening its investments in this important geolocation. The modern broadband infrastructure connects Europe with Middle East and Asia, responding to the high demand for transit through the Group’s core markets, the press release says.

– At United Group we know how to build and roll out state-of-the-art fixed infrastructure. In 2000 we started fully greenfield in Serbia and two decades later we became the largest optical network in Southeast Europe. In the four EU countries Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovenia alone, United Group owns 60.000 km of backbone and metro network. Our state-of-the-art broadband network in these markets reaches 3.6 million homes and we are currently executing the plan of delivering 475.000 new FTTH homes in 2024 with the similar pace in the following years. Our vision is to be the go-to brand of choice for individual customers, business clients and the preferred partner for the public sector, to help digitize societies and position them to thrive. By bundling our investment and roll-out activities into United Fiber, we will be able to further expand our activities, create strong synergies, and bring our investment capabilities to the next level – said Zeljko Batistic, Vice President Technology United Group.
