Details: Slovakian telcos invest to widen FttP footprint through to 2018Despite market liberalisation Slovakias incumbent telco Slovak Telekom maintains a near monopoly of the fixed-line market. Following numerous delays, the government in May 2015 acted on its plans to sell its 49% stake in Slovak Telekom. It cancelled a planned IPO, instead electing to sell its share to Deutsche Telekom.
Slovakias mobile market is served by four mobile network operators, three of which have a pan-European reach. Mobile penetration is relatively high, reaching about 123% by the end of 2016. The introduction of mobile number portability in 2006 intensified competition between players. Although the number of MVNOs is small the market is growing steadily. Mobile broadband access and content services are developing rapidly in line with operators upgrading their networks with HSPA+ and LTE technologies. Recent trials have delivered data at up to 900Mb/s, while LTE population coverage approaches 85%.
The broadband market has shown steady growth in recent years, with access competition predominately based on infrastructure. The DSL platform remains the dominant access method, while the cable sector is also strong in urban areas. A fast-developing FttX infrastructure and wireless broadband options, particularly from the mobile network operators, add to the mix. Broadband is sold as a platform through which telecom operators provide additional services, such as videostreaming.
