Albania’s small telecom market has experienced some significant changes in recent years. The country is consistent with developments elsewhere in the region in that fixed-line telephony use and penetration is declining as subscribers migrate to mobile solutions. The mobile sector is well provided with LTE networks, while operators have invested in 5G, with Ericsson as one of the principal vendors.
Compared to the European Union, Albania is massively lagging behind in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +355, there were a total of 2.84 million connections in 2020.
Among them were 2.62 million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 0.92 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person. albania telecoms
