Slovakia - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Despite market liberalisation Slovakia’s incumbent telco Slovak Telekom maintains a near monopoly of the fixed-line market. The company also dominates the DSL broadband sector, though this can partly be attributed to the effects of a pricing strategy which effectively prevented competitors from making a profit through local loop unbundling, a practice for which it was fined by the European Commission in 2014 and again in 2017. Market competition has forced a number of mergers and acquisitions in recent years, resulting in a small number of larger operators.

There is effective competition in the mobile and fixed broadband segments where most investment is being channelled.

This report outlines Slovakia’s fixed-line telecoms market, providing an overview of the regulatory environment, profiles of the major operators, and a range of operational and financial statistics.

  • BENESTRA and SWAN complete merger;
  • Slovakia connects to fibre DREAM cable;
  • Slovak Telekom contracts Ericsson to manage its fixed line network;
  • Report update includes the regulator’s market data to December 2017, telcos’ operating data to Q2 2018, recent market developments.

Companies mentioned in this report:

Slovak Telecom, O2 Slovakia, BENESTRA (GTS Nextra).
