Slovakia - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses
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. 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. These operators have expanded into offering bundled fixed and mobile services.
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.
