Bulgaria has a rapidly developing mobile market, with effective competition provided by Telekom Austria's M-Tel, Telenor's local unit, and the incumbent Vivacom. A new entrant, MAX (Max Telecom), provides additional competition. Mobile penetration is relatively high, the result of a significant trend for fixed-mobile substitution in recent years. Competition among network operators has intensified given the recent implementation of a streamlined mobile number portability process. By the end of 2016 mobile networks accounted for about 85% of all voice revenue.

Mobile data offerings are focused on mobile broadband, resulting in considerable investment in network upgrades among all players.
