Executive Summary

Slovenia sees steady rise in telecom investment

Slovenia’s fixed-line telecom market remains dominated by Telekom Slovenije though regulatory efforts to develop competition in the sector are having an effect. The Group suffered from declining revenue following the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009, and only showed growth again in 2017. To diversify its business interests and lessen the reliance pure telecom services the company has expanded into the electricity and insurance sectors, capitalising on its extensive customer base. In response to competition the telco has also followed the path of many European incumbents and developed an international presence, focused predominantly on the Balkans region where it is becoming a regional provider of IT and multimedia services.

Slovenia’s competitive mobile market has four mobile network operators and a small number of mobile virtual network operators, operating in a country with a potential market of just over two million people. The regulator in recent years has addressed the need of mobile operators for more spectrum, conducting a series of auctions. Mobile spectrum licenses have stipulated population coverage and data rate targets.

The broadband market continues to be dominated by a small number of players, including the incumbent telco as well as Telemach and T-2. DSL remains the most popular platform though its market share is being eroded by the steady development of fibre-based networks, as well as by upgraded cable networks.

This report offers a variety of statistics and an overview of Slovenia’s fixed-line telecoms market, covering the major players, regulatory measures and developments in fixed-line infrastructure. In addition, the report covers the mobile voice and data sectors, including updates on operators and regulatory developments. The report also reviews the fixed-line broadband market, highlighting major players and industry developments and including subscriber forecasts.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
