Slovenia - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses

Slovenia's competitive mobile market has four mobile network operators and a small number of mobile virtual network operators, operating in a country with a potential market of just over two million people. With a relatively high mobile penetration rate, telcos have branched into offering both mobile and fixed-line services, aiming to retain customers through bundled products. This strategy saw the cableco Telemach acquire Tumobil, and Si.mobil merge with Amis Telekom, with both of the latter being rebranded as A1 Slovenia in April 2017.

The regulator has addressed the need of mobile operators to be provided with more spectrum. In 2013 additional concessions were made available, while a significant multi-spectrum auction was held in 2014. An auction for left-over spectrum in the 1800MHz and 2100MHz bands was held in late 2016, with Telemach securing all three blocks on offer. Another auction for fixed-wireless broadband services using spectrum in the 3.5GHz, 10GHz and 12GHz bands will mainly be for the provision of fixed-wireless broadband services.

Mobile spectrum licenses have stipulated population coverage targets as well as the delivery of mobile broadband nationally, offering data of at least 10Mb/s.

This report offers analyses and statistics on the Slovenian mobile market, including updates on operators and regulatory measures.
