AVAILABLE SERVICES IN SLOVAKIA

Slovakia has been a regional FDI champion for several years, attractive due to a relatively low-cost yet skilled labor force, and a favorable geographic location in the heart of Central Europe. Exports and investment have been key drivers of Slovakia’s robust growth in recent years.

DETAILS

Slovakia has a remarkably high Internet penetration rate (85% by the end of 2018) compared with other countries in the area. Slovanet managed to secure the 10GHz band spectrum for wireless broadband, whereas Orange Slovakia intend to increase their FttP footprint to over one million premises. Major Slovak players are now offering LTE service as substitute for fixed-line broadband.

TELECOMS MARKET

Whereas the fixed-line market has been steadily decreasing for some time and the incumbent is the prevalent player, Slovakia’s broadband market has shown steady growth in recent years, with effective cross-platform competition. The broadband market has been growing steadily in recent years, with effective competition between the DSL, cable and fibre platforms, although DSL remains the dominant technology and the cable sector is starting to be the preferred infrastructure for urban areas. A FttX infrastructure is quickly developing thanks to favourable regulatory measures. The mobile market is served by four network operators, three of which are present in other European markets. Mobile penetration remains relatively high. However, the MVNO sector remains underdeveloped. Mobile broadband access and content services are developing rapidly. The Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Postal Services is the national regulatory authority and pricing authority in the sector of electronic communications and postal services in Slovakia.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Slovakia’s economy suffered from a slow start in the first years after its separation from the Czech Republic in 1993, due to the country’s authoritarian leadership and high levels of corruption, but economic reforms implemented after 1998 have placed Slovakia on a path of strong growth. With a population of 5.4 million, the Slovak Republic has a small, open economy driven mainly by automobile and electronics exports, which account for more than 80% of GDP. Slovakia joined the EU in 2004 and the euro zone in 2009. The country’s banking sector is sound and predominantly foreign owned. Among the most pressing domestic issues potentially threatening the attractiveness of the Slovak market are shortages in the qualified labor force, persistent corruption issues, and an inadequate judiciary, as well as a slow transition to an innovation-based economy. The energy sector in particular is characterized by unpredictable regulatory oversight and high costs, in part driven by government interference in regulated tariffs. Moreover, the government’s attempts to maintain low household energy prices could harm the profitability of domestic energy firms while undercutting energy efficiency initiatives.
