Slovenia - Mobile Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts
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. HSPA and LTE networks have been deployed to support the delivery of these services, while competing network deployments have led to increased transfer speeds.
