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.
