The basic activities of Croatian Telecom Inc. and its subsidiary T-Mobile Croatia LLC, or T-HT Group, comprise provision of telecommunications services, design and construction of telecommunications networks on the territory of the Republic of Croatia. The business operations of T-HT Group can be divided into three business segments organized as two business units (fixed telephony and Internet), which are branded as T-Com, and T-Mobile (mobile telephony) as a separate legal entity. Croatian Telecom Inc. is a joint stock company in the majority ownership of Deutsche Telekom AG. The company was founded on 28 December 1998 in the Republic of Croatia. In the course of 2002 HT Mobile Communications, LLC was registered as a separate company, a subsidiary fully owned by Croatian Telecom Inc., for the purpose of providing mobile telephone network services. T-HT Group rebranded in 2004 its trade mark and introduced on 1 October 2004 a new corporate identity under which T-HT Group became a part of the global "T" family of Deutsche Telekom. The new trade mark was introduced by adding the letter "T" to Croatian Telecom, whereby the former HT Group became T-Croatian Telecom or T-HT Group.
