Slovenia - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews


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

Slovenia’s communications market is dominated by the fixed-line incumbent, which is still majority owned by the state. Regulatory intervention has improved market conditions for competitors, with network interconnection rates now below the EU average and LLU monthly fees based on regulator-approved pricing models trending downwards. As a consequence the wholesale market is improving, as evident by the increasing number of unbundled local loops. In response to competition Telekom Slovenije has followed the path of many European incumbents and expanded internationally, focusing predominantly on the Balkans region and morphing into a regional provider of IT and multimedia services rather than a national telco. This report offers a variety of insightful statistics and a concise overview of Slovenia’s fixed-line telecoms market, covering the major players, regulatory developments and fixed-line infrastructure.

Key developments:

Telekom Slovenije’s mobile subsidiary merges into parent company; sharp rise in VoIP connections as PSTN declines; telecoms sector investment recovers from economic downturn; insufficient access regulation hindering altnet investment in NGNs; National Assembly adopts the Electronic Communications Act; government confirms aim to sell stake in Telekom Slovenije; regulator’s 2011 market report; telcos’ operating and financial data to Q4 2012; market developments to May 2013.

Companies covered in this report include:

Telekom Slovenije, AMIS Telekom, T-2.
