Slovenia - Mobile Market - Insights and Statistics
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 only two million people. With high mobile SIM card penetration, these players have shifted focus to defending market share from new market entrants and to increasing ARPU by encouraging prepaid users to take up postpaid services as well as adopt mobile broadband and data services. The regulator has addressed the need of mobile operators for more spectrum: additional concessions were awarded in 2013, while a significant multi-spectrum auction was held in mid-2014. Licenses stipulated population coverage targets as well as the delivery of mobile broadband to 95% of the population within three years, offering data of at least 10Mb/s. The regulator's spectrum policy has stimulated operators to invest in LTE networks to support the delivery of these services. This report offers insights and statistics on the Slovenian mobile market, including updates on operators and regulatory measures.
