DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Slovakia – Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators – Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to’s offering.

Slovakia’s mobile market is served by four mobile network operators, three of which have a pan-European reach. Mobile penetration is relatively high, at about 132% by mid-2018. The introduction of mobile number portability in 2006 intensified competition between players. However, the MVNO sector remains underdeveloped, with the few operators in place having failed to gain traction and thus holding only a marginal share of the overall market.

Mobile broadband access and content services are developing rapidly in line with operators having upgraded their networks with LTE technologies. The regulator since early 2018 has prepared the groundwork for 5G services, encouraging network operators to refarm spectrum to create more continuous blocks, and readying itself for an auction of spectrum in the 1800MHz band.

This report offers insight into Slovakia’s mobile market, providing a variety of statistics as well as profiles of the mobile network operators. It also covers regulatory issues as well as developments in LTE, 5G and mobile data services.

  • Regulator opens tender for auction of spectrum in the licenses in the 1800MHz band;
