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.
