SEOUL , 24 May 2006- Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a leading provider of modern telecommunication network products and devices, announced its agreement to team up with Croatia 's fixed operator H1, to rollout WiMAX to the Croatian market.

Samsung will be providing the Croatian market with the equipment and technologies for its upcoming friendly user trial service. The friendly user trial service will begin in Split , Croatia 's second largest city, followed by nationwide availability soon thereafter.
