Slovakia - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Slovakia's broadband market has shown steady growth in recent years, with access competition predominately based on infrastructure platforms including DSL, cable and fibre. DSL remains the dominant platform for connections, while the cable sector is particularly strong in urban areas. A fast-developing FttX infrastructure has been supported by sympathetic regulatory measures. There are also wireless broadband options from the mobile network operators, while in mid-2017 Orange launched a home-LTE service intended to provide 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.
