We are endeavoring to always offer creative, innovative and simple solutions to our users, same as we do everywhere in the world. The telecommunications market in Serbia is developing rapidly, becoming more demanding and consequently more challenging. This is why we are trying to always be one step ahead, which we have also done today by opening the Operational Centre and the Expo“, said Stein-Erik Vellan, CEO of Telenor in Serbia.
