Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/20/2014 -- LTE launches signifying MNO emphasis on mobile data offerings

Despite liberalisation Slovakia's incumbent maintains a near monopoly of the fixed-line market. Alternative operators have entered the market although competitive pressures have forced a number of mergers and acquisitions, resulting in a small number of larger alternative operators.

Slovakia's 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. The broadband platform also allows operators to provide additional services, such as broadband TV. Increased internet usage is supporting Slovakia's internet society, which has received substantial EU funding to develop and improve access to e-government and other online services. Digital terrestrial TV has been launched, with the public service broadcaster STV the first to complete analogue switch-off.
