Slovenia - Digital Economy, TV and Broadband Markets - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Slovenia’s broadband market is dominated by a small number of main players. Despite the launch of competing platforms, DSL remains the most popular access method though its market share is being eroded by the steady development of FttX networks and upgrades to the DOCSIS3.0 standard by cable operators, offering speeds of up to 120Mb/s. Increased internet usage and activity is characteristic of an emerging internet society, comprised of e-government, e-commerce and e-health. Digital TV availability is expanding via cable, IPTV, satellite and terrestrial free-to-air platforms, increasing competition and choice for end consumers, while Slovenia was among the first countries in Europe to switch from analogue to digital terrestrial broadcasting.

This report offers statistics, fixed broadband subscription forecasts to 2020 and a concise overview of Slovenia’s digital media and broadband markets, highlighting major players and industry developments.

Telekom Slovenije unbundles fibre infrastructure; government funding to extend broadband to 23 municipalities; Telekom Slovenije’s cable network fully digital; CATV retains 52% share of TV subscribers; government broadband program targets extending FttH to 90% of the population by 2020; T-2 switches partnership from Telekom Slovenije to Si.mobil for IPTV services; RTV Slovenia signs 10-year contract with Eutelsat; regulator’s 2011 market report; telcos’ operating data to June 2012; market developments to mid-2012.
