HistoryEdit

On 1 December 2006, the mobilkom Austria group became the owner of the third mobile telephone license in Serbia for GSM 900/1800 and UMTS networks, through a payment of €320 million. The license was legally transferred to Vip mobile.

Considering the great potential of the Serbian telecommunications market, the mobilkom Austria group has planned to invest up to €570 million in its first four years of operations, including the 320 million it spent on acquiring its operating license in Serbia in 2006. This makes Vip mobile the biggest Greenfield investment in Serbia so far.[4] In 2008, Vip became general sponsor of Serbian national volleyball team.

According to the 2015 annual financial report, company had revenue of €206.8 million euros, with 2.1 million customers it held a market share of 22,5%.[5]
