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.

I have both worked with Paul and valued his opinion on many occasions. Following, his many comments on the telecommunications industry has been rewarding and insightful. His reports have always been of value and help guide us through the maze of jargon, politics and defined the real road map of this complex industry.
