Synopsis

Slovakia’s broadband market has shown steady growth in recent years, with effective competition between the DSL, cable and fibre platforms. DSL remains the principal technology though by early 2020 it is expected to be eclipsed by the fast-developing fibre sector, which has been supported by sympathetic regulatory measures and considerable investment among operators. The cable sector is a distant third in terms of subscribers, though cable is particularly strong in urban areas. The main telco UPC Slovakia has gained customers steadily in recent years on the back of its widely available 500Mb/s service offering. In mid-2019 the company launched a 1Gb/s service in three cities, initially available to some 200,000 premises.

There are also wireless broadband options from the mobile network operators, as also LTE-based fixed-wireless services from Orange Slovakia and Slovak Telekom aimed at providing broadband to areas lacking DSL.

Increased internet usage supports Slovakia’s internet society, which has received substantial EU funding aimed at developing and improving access to e-government and other online services.

This report addresses Slovakia’s fixed-line and wireless broadband markets, providing an overview of major players, as well as statistics and market analyses and broadband subscriber forecasts.
