change

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.

This makes Vip 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, with 2.1 million customers it held a market share of 22,5%.[5]
