Slovenia concludes multi-spectrum 5G auction

Although Slovenia’s telecom sector is dominated by four operators, regulations over the years have encouraged market competition. As a result, the incumbent telco Telekom Slovenije has faced increasing pressure in all sectors. To address this, the company had diversified its business interests to reduce its reliance on telecom services. It expanded into the electricity and insurance sectors, capitalising on its extensive customer base. This proved to be only marginally successful, and the company exited from the electricity market at the beginning of 2022.

The mobile market has four MNOs and a small number of MVNOs, operating in a country with a potential market of just over two million people. The regulator in recent years has addressed the need for mobile operators to have more spectrum, so enabling them to improve the quality and range of services. To this end, a multi-spectrum auction was concluded in mid-2021, aimed at supporting 5G services.

The broadband market continues to be dominated by a small number of players. DSL lost its dominance some years ago, being taken over by fibre as subscribers are migrated to new fibre-based networks. Fibre accounted for almost half of all fixed broadband connections by March 2022.
